    Presenter - Louise Mosley from NB Coaching

    Topic - How To Sell The Way People Want To Buy

    Synopsis:

    We have all encountered pushy sales people and cold calling which leaves us feeling irritated and disengaged. On the flip side we also have trusted suppliers and individuals where the conversation flows, the experience is positive and we continue to do business with them time and time again. So what is it about these contrasting interactions that leads to such different outcomes?

    We all like to be communicated with in different ways. Once you understand your style & can recognise others' styles, this promotes better relationships, more productive conversations and improves business.

    Content:

    During this interactive seminar we will start to uncover:

    * Your own preferred communication style
    * How to quickly identify and align with how your customers like to buy
    * How to build rapport & trust with prospects to win new business

    Presenter - Ben Griffiths, Clever IT

    Topic - How Savvy SME's Can Use IT To Enhance Their Business

    Tech is the future - having a good IT strategy can help you attract the best millennial talent, improve productivity and exceed customer expectations.

    Knowing the best IT options for you is tricky for SMEâs but can also be crucial to get ahead of the competition.

    Keep up or get left behind. Like it or not, we live in a society which is becoming increasingly digital and reforms such as Making Tax Digital remind us that, for any industry, itâs a case of either keeping up with the times (and technological advances) or being left behind.


    The real value of IT - for small businesses IT can be very expensive but investing in the right solution doesnât need to cost the earth and done well your IT can help deliver substantial value, protecting your data, improving flexibility and productivity.

    Fitting into the bigger picture - IT is a crucial, over-arching link which connects all business areas together and gets them working in harmony. Investing in IT is sometimes overlooked as a way to improve growth and profit.

    A tech strategy which works for your business model - the traditional office is becoming a set-up of the past, with remote workers playing an increasingly prominent role in many SMEâs. IT can work for your business to provide flexible working for employees and less restrictions.

    Cybercrime - those businesses who invest in the right tech can protect themselves against cybercrime, a growing threat to businesses, particularly SMEs.

    Ben Griffiths, a well-respected entrepreneur from Bolton, shows how he takes a clever approach; combining commercial acumen and IT know-how to deliver highly effective IT solutions for SMEâs.

    Ben has been working with businesses across the North West for over 15 years, using his insight and expertise to provide IT solutions which align with the commercial strategy and growth plans of a business.

    Presenter - Anne Williamson, Customer Love

    Topic - Are You A One Night Stand Business?

    What have you bought this past couple of weeks ... and how did you feel about the company you bought from? Were you elated or frustrated? If they were a date ... would you carry on dating them or were you left feeling like a one night stand?

    Going through the 3 stages of the Customer Love Journey will help you grow your business whilst saving you money and time that you may spend looking for new customers. You will leave this seminar with ideas and actions to take your business to another level.

    This interactive seminar will be full of fun with real life stories (business stories â the dating is a whole other seminar!).

    You will look at your business as if you were dating your customer ... right from being in the bar and catching sight of them from across the room through to going on dates and ... more dates.

    With 25+ years experience in marketing, my focus is always on the customer. My last âjobâ was as the marketing manager in a mail order business where I ran the marketing, design and web teams taking the business from less than a million to Â4.8 million turnover (selling Â1 products).

    I am no holds barred, plain speaking and great fun to work with. I have worked across a variety of business including funeral businesses, professional services, engineers and estate agents. I have a real love for great customer service and work with businesses who want to be the stand out business in their field.

    Presenter - Paul Parrish + Paula Craig MBE

    Topic - Do we know our limits? What might we be capable of?

    ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

    Paula Craig MBE is a retired Senior Detective Inspector in the Met, having worked in the Flying Squad, Homicide and Serious Crimes and Counter- terrorism units. She is also a world class athlete. In 2001, whilst training for the triathlon world championships she was hit by a car and paralysed. 11 months after discharge she became the first (and only) person to both run the London Marathon and push the event. She was to finish second on two occasions behind Tanny Gray Thompson and continued to compete at the highest levels as a wheelchair athlete.

    Paul Parrish, Director of Fundraising and Marketing for spinal injury charity, Aspire, is also an endurance athlete. He has completed a variety of long distance events and has raised over Â60,000 for his charity. In 2014 he became only the 20th and oldest person to complete the "Worldâs Hardest Triathlon", the Arch to Arc; an 87 mile run from Marble Arch to Dover, a solo swim of the Channel and a 182 mile bike ride to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. He later appeared in the BBC's Ultimate Hell Week, where he persevered to the penultimate episode of the series, proving that age need no barrier to physical achievement.


    CONTENT

    This is a story of two very different people facing very different challenges finding their lives converging through a charity. Paula and Paul will tell their personal stories. Whilst not a traditional business presentation this seminar will inspire and help you "right size" the day to day challenges that you face in your personal and professional lives. They will challenge your perception of what is âpossibleâ and how with a simple change in mental attitude and the way that you approach a problem, you can achieve more than you would ever imagine possible.

    Topic - Overcoming Your Business Challenges By Tapping Into Your Strengths

    Synopsis:

    In this interactive seminar, Sian will help you work on a current business challenge by tapping into your (perhaps underused) strengths.

    Content:

    Participants will identify underused strengths, and then put these unrealised strengths to good use - to overcome a business challenge that they have today. This seminar will allow participants to experience the power of working in a coaching group with like-minded business owners and to take away actions to move their business forwards.

    Sian runs confidential business development groups for women in Macclesfield. Each Macclesfield Bird Table group has a maximum of 6 women â self-employed/business owners who benefit from group focus and support to move their business forwards.

    Presenter - Chris Moran from JCM Business Solutions

    Topic - Be Radical: Work Less!

    Synopsis:

    At the end of last year, we posed the question,"Why can't we work 4 days a week and still grow the company?"
    With all the latest business innovations and software available to SMEs, is this possible? It's been an interesting journey which has revealed some curious facts about the business! Join Chris Moran as he take us through the thought processes and changes that needed to be made, and if JCM have actually managed it.

    The project has presented challenges, successes and failures and has helped redefine some of the core values of the business.

    Where we lead others follow! As I write this, I note that Amazon have started a project to see if they can work a 4 day week at one of their US centres!

    Chris Moran is Managing Director of JCM Business Solutions, a Zoho Elite partner, specialising in Cloud Based CRM and business solutions.
