Business Plan Development

Your Business Advisor will meet one-on-one with you to clarify and expand on these instructions.

Strategic Planning

What will you do to help your business succeed next year? How will you actively plan to thrive?

A solid strategic plan is challenging to put together at the best of times. But now, with your ever changing business landscape, it can feel like an exercise in futility. How can you plan for a rapidly shifting future?

That’s why we put together our Plan to Thrive Workshops. It’s an expert-facilitated strategic planning session for small to medium business owners in the Fraser Valley. Led by multi-industry business consultant William Klaassen of Blue Giraffe, it’s an opportunity to:

  1. Assess where your business is alongside other entrepreneurs
  2. Nail down your value proposition for game-changing clarity
  3. Determine what you want to achieve in the coming year
  4. Set strategic goals with achievable steps, empowering you to succeed

Harness the wisdom and creativity of your local entrepreneurial community to break through obstacles, gain motivation, and transform your business.
