EPISODE 17: IS FAILING TO PLAN, PLANNING TO FAIL?
As a challenging 2021 turns into a hopefully more optimistic 2022, episode 17 of the Essex Business Podcast examines the issue which most of us know is important, but too often never get round to doing - strategic planning. We hear from experts who will discuss the importance of planning ahead, why plans sometimes go amiss and what can be done to get them back on track.
Daniel Kirby, owner of Trade Price Cars, explains how he has adapted his short and long term business planning in order to maintain an award winning dealership; Graham Broughton, co-lead of the Group2Grow programme talks about the help available for SMEs in Essex; and Sara Marshall, founder of The Strategy Place, discusses the practical resources you need to develop effective, efficient and practical customer plans.
EPISODE 14: OPEN ALL HOURS – THE FATE OF THE 21st CENTURY BUSINESS PERSON
Ever since the advent of mobile phones, it has become increasingly difficult for anyone in business, but particularly managers and directors, to switch off from work at the end of the working day. Have we become 24/7 slaves to our job, with premature burnout the price we'll end up paying?
In this episode of the Essex Business Podcast we look at the implications – positive and negative – of constantly being in touch with the business.
EPISODE 15: MANUFACTURING – CAN ESSEX LEAD THE UK TURNAROUND?
