RBS Business Health Check

Benefit from three interactive Business Health Check sessions (2.5 to 3 hours each) by Rural Business Support at your premises, offering our unique “Kitchen Table Discussions” method for planning, coaching and growth.

Session 1 – Initial Meeting includes Business Health Check / Challenges and Opportunities  (approximately 3 hours) 
The Business Health Check is completed in-person with the client/s, focusing on the following areas of business and personal circumstances:

  • Operations
  • Financial Position
  • Personal Development and Wellbeing
  • Markets
  • Challenges and Opportunities (across all areas of business and personal circumstances.)

Session 2 – Business and Personal Goals. Succession and Transition (approximately 2.5 hours)

Session 3 – Business Planning. Plan-on-a-page (approximately 2.5 hours)
The Plan-on-a-Page is designed to provide focus for clients. It gives them some short-term achievable goals (their own), that they can immediately begin to implement, both for the business and themselves (sometimes they are separate). The sense of achievement also provides confidence for the business owner to set the next set of goals, and so on. The process demonstrates how easy it is to complete business planning, follow-up with implementation strategies and then achieve the outcome – behavioral change that will support the business owner.
