With 9 groups now operating, the main issues across several discussion groups

– How to build a pipeline of business based on listening to the issues your customers
– How to motivate senior staff when there has been no salary increase or bonus for 2
– The value of ‘competitor knowledge’ when building a robust business
– Do I grow or do I stick? – The fear factor.
– Should the business employ more sales or more support staff, as a way of
increasing the size of the business?
The high value of the group advice was commented on by the majority of the members.
