Always moving forward....
We recently attended the annual Eaton Smith Business Awards. A fantastic occasion, attended by the 12 winners of the Monthly Award, all hopeful of scooping the Annual Business of the Year prize.
Congratulations to YTM Group who won the coveted award.
In their acceptance speech, they explained how the business had traded for over 30 years without making any real significant pogress. The turning point came when, with the help of an external advisor, the management implemented a strategic plan for their business.
More importantly, the strategy was acted upon, regularly reviewed, and frequently updated by the management team.
In the case of YTM Group, the results are clear to see.
We recently spent the morning with the entire workforce of a client, reviewing and updating the strategy we orginally helped implement. Working in the hardest hit sector, in these austere times, it's fantastic to see a business continue to thrive.
As the old saying goes, if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.
The question is, what are doing to drive your business forward?
