A Business Plan Rectification Workshop is client specific and is especially designed for companies that have already written their own business plan, but need help in bringing them up to the standard required to raise funding from either the Banks or business angels.
Business Plans are drawn up for many purposes and it is rare that a single business plan can fulfil all possible audiences. These workshops are used to ensure your business plan meets the needs of those who might provide funding for your business.
In advance of the meeting we will review in detail the existing plan and the financial model. We have a standard template which covers all of the major elements which need to be incorporated and we measure the plan against this template.
At the workshop
The workshop is a one day session held with the business owner and any key members of the management team
We step through the plan and the template, reviewing what has been prepared and providing detailed guidance and advice on how it should be changed or improved. Our advice is specifically targeted to match the requirements of the type of lender or investor that you are likely to approach.
The review covers content, style and presentation, the management team and to some extent the sales and marketing strategy. Our feedback is very focused and will enable you to understand the issues and the shortcomings and to address the points in a way that the audience expects.
In terms of the financials we review the structure of the financial model, and the adequacy of the financial statements. We will also examine the key drivers which affect the company’s performance and debate whether they are realistic and achievable.
After the workshop
You will be equipped with all the information required to revise the plan and the financial model. Once your revisions have been incorporated you can re-submit the Business Plan, once again, for our final review and feedback.
