Add some horsepower to your business

Firestarter Business Forums

Join the next Firestarter Forum

Join us for an exclusive series of Firestarter Forums designed to address a range of essential issues that business leaders will be facing as they develop their lockdown exit strategies.

Firestarter Forum - sustainability

Join us for the next Firestarter Forum on Thursday, November 12th 2020

As business leaders, it’s our job to steer the ship whilst remaining positive and being good role models for our teams, but sustaining our own personal motivation and energy can still be hard – especially after everything that’s been happening over the last few months! Join us for the third in our mini-series of Firestarter Forums on sustainability and learn/share ideas from other leaders on how to manage a sustainable business, even in unprecedented times.


Firestarter Forums

As we move into a new phase of the unprecedented crisis that we are all facing, our thoughts are beginning to turn to how businesses can prepare for life after Coronavirus and ensure they come back stronger than ever in a world that will undoubtedly look very different than before.

Over the coming weeks, we will be hosting a series of interactive digital workshops where, in conjunction with our specialist partners, we will address a range of essential issues that business leaders will be facing as they develop their lockdown exit strategies. In each workshop we will provide insight and advice from our expert speakers, but will also give participants the opportunity to share experiences and best practice in dealing with the inevitable leadership challenges and difficult decisions that will need to be made over the coming weeks.

Further Firestarter Forums and Workshops

Due to the initial success of the Firestarter Forums, we want to expand and develop them to help as many people as we can – using the technology available to us to break down traditional boundaries. In this series, we will host at least 5 sessions that are already planned, but we want them to be your Firestarter Forums, with themes, content and speakers that are really pertinent to this audience.

We are going to run some follow up Firestarter Friends’ Workshops for smaller groups after each Forum, including dedicated follow-up workshops with our expert speakers, giving participants the opportunity to address key topics and issues raised in more detail each week.

There will also be the opportunity to become friends and share ideas with a preferred group of people in our Firestarter Snugs. There’s no real agenda for these snugs, just a chance to share thoughts and challenges on a regular basis – what happens in the snug stays in the snug!

This all then leads us to the Firestarter Academy, which we will be launching in the next few weeks where you can learn valuable skills and techniques on topics such as sales skills, business planning, communications tactics, leadership, organisational structure, recruitment and more.

We’d love to make this a movement – so keep coming and ‘spread the word’.
