About the Event
Running a small business is always busy, but it can be lonely at times too. Sometimes it would be great to feel part of a bigger team.
But joining a network can be difficult. They can demand a lot of your time, and the pressure to refer business can add to your workload.
At The Oxfordshire Project, we network differently. We focus on support and education, as well as business growth. We’re not about short term sales, we’re about building long term connections, because this is the route to sustainable success.
With our 8 different groups and 9 monthly meetings around Oxfordshire, we provide flexibility to suit your busy lives, variety to suit your enquiring minds, and a community of smart, like-minded people, to help you and your business grow.
Join us for business networking and a great talk
This month our speaker is Graham Ballantyne
Working ON rather than IN your business.
We start our business because we are good at it, perceive an opportunity in the market or have a real passion for it!
What happens when we start to grow ?
What happens when others look to us for direction?
What happens when our priorities shift constantly?
Graham will take us through some of the key challenges owners of growing businesses face with some practical tips and advice that you can implement in your business following our meeting.
After a varied and successful thirty years in banking and financial services supporting businesses, Graham decided the time was right to become a business owner himself. Graham has led people and customer centric businesses, gaining ‘hands on’ knowledge and experience of people management/leadership/strategy/sales/ marketing/financial management/governance and customer experience. Graham is a qualified Chartered Banker and industry mentor and examiner. Graham gets a real buzz from supporting others to grow themselves and their business. His approach is individual to the needs of each business owner or indeed working with their leadership teams on key skills to support their growth and the changing dynamics of the business.
