The programme is aimed at two types of business owners – the business owner that has established a small business that does not intend it to grow into a large company; and, the business owner that is initially small and wants to grow into a large company. Understanding the core business of the company helps in determining the core competences required to establish and grow the business. In knowing this base, can integrate good business practices – and, inevitably good governance – into the already growing business practice. 


Delegates attending this one day programme will gain exposure to understanding the fundamentals of corporate governance, strategy development, the use of financial statements and the management of cash flows to ensure a sustainable future for their organisation.


From a technical perspective this programme aims to teach SME entrepreneurs, owner managers, managing directors and other senior executives about how to develop other commercial fundamentals and, by so doing, integrate good business practice and, ultimately, good governance principles, into their growing business.
