Business and Profit Growth

This online course on growing your business offers a practical plan for leaders to revolutionise their bottom line.

Our experience shows that many people don’t actually know how business works. It’s not their fault – nobody teaches them! In truly profit-focused businesses, people know the impact they have on profitability, both positively and negatively and take action as a result. They ensure that all their people have a real profit focus – they understand the impact that they have on the bottom line and are actively engaged in improving profits and maximising financial returns!

See below for further information.

Course Overview

This practical and action-oriented online course will help you create a real commercial focus, both for yourself and your team. It’s not about being able to recite the cash flow backwards or have an MBA in global economics, but it’s about finding ways to create a real commercial focus and what you can do in your business to impact on the bottom line (positively of course!).

Business competitiveness expert Andy Hanselman will help you explore the common barriers to creating a real profit focus and identify ways that you can overcome them. You will also explore the options and possibilities for your business to maximise profitability and seriously maximise financial returns and resources.

By applying a proactive approach, which we call the Routes To Profitability, you will develop your own Profit Improvement Plan. No ‘creative accounting’, or a lesson in finance – in fact, there’s very little to do with accounting. It’s about proven processes to get everyone in your team profit-focused, improve the efficiency and effectiveness of what they do and maximise profits.

The result will be a planned approach to maximising profitability for your business (or your part of your business) to help you achieve and, hopefully, exceed, your financial targets and maximise financial returns.

Course Instructor Andy Hanselman

Andy Hanselman helps businesses, leaders and teams create competitive advantage by ‘Thinking in 3D’! That means being ‘Dramatically and Demonstrably Different’! He has over 30 years researching, working with, and learning from successful disruptive and forward-thinking entrepreneurial businesses and their leaders and is a recognised expert on business competitiveness.

This has helped him identify the 8 Characteristics of 3D Leaders. Not the latest ‘fad’ or hyped ‘panacea’ for business success, nor a list of do’s and don’ts, or ‘magical answers’, but proven methodologies and processes that help successful winning leaders grow and develop their business, teams and themselves.

As a speaker, Andy thrives on interacting with people ensuring that they are challenged, stimulated and motivated. His style is participative, fast-paced, humorous and relevant. He believes people learn best by ‘doing’ and having fun! As a result, he works hard to offer them practical, stimulating fresh ideas, tools and techniques that provide no-nonsense ‘stuff’ they can actually use in their businesses immediately.
