Please note, this is a two-day workshop.
We have put together a tailored business growth programme designed to suit leaders, owners and managers of busy, small companies working in or supplying to the low carbon or environmental sector. The programme will give you the tools you need to survive the rapidly changing market conditions and grow your business. The fully funded 2 day course will give you practical advice, case studies and take home tools which can be implemented immediately in your business.
These classes are for you if your company provides products or services in any of the following areas: energy efficiency, renewable and low carbon energy, waste management treatment and recycling, water management, low carbon finance, low emission vehicles and infrastructure, environmental monitoring and management and smart grids.
Please be aware that this is a two day event and you will be required to attend both days. The first day is 17 October and the second day is 14 November.
Day 1 - 17 October – The first day of the course will help companies to develop the tools they need to survive the ever changing market conditions facing low carbon sector companies and how to turn them to their advantage. It will include a horizon scan of up coming issues affecting the sector, an introduction to the business tool CO*STAR and change management tools, case studies from companies who have successfully tackled these issues and an introduction for marketing tailored for the markets key to low carbon sector companies.
Day 2 - 14 November – The second day of the course focuses on how to develop a high profile for your low carbon sector company, drive sales and maximise the opportunities that arise. It will build on research undertaken on behalf of the sector to provide case studies and examples as to what works for marketing low carbon and green products and services. It will also give companies practical tools and advice that can be implemented immediately.
This event is for leaders, owners and managers of Greater Manchester SMEs in the low carbon sector.
