Growing to scale presented by Baden U’Ren

Many business leaders dream of scaling their company. You’ve probably pictured yourself being an industry leader consisting of being established in various locations, serving a global market and your brand being recognised as the customer “go-to” solution.

However, in reality less than 1% of company start ups, actually succeed. The ones that do, don’t set out to grow – they build their company to scale.

We are delighted to extend you a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first hand how Coraggio can expand and future proof your business, followed by an upfront and personal keynote speaker session with the Co-Founder of Pet Wellness Centres, Baden U’Ren.

Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being part of a Coraggio peer to peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.

Followed by Baden U’Ren who will provide insights into:

  • Identifying different stages of development when growing a business
  • Understanding what stage your business currently sits
  • Uncovering three major challenges to grow your business
  • Developing strategies to successfully transform your organisation into its future state.
