Business Resilience Programme

At the Solent LEP we are dedicated to ensuring individuals, communities and businesses continue to adapt and thrive despite changes in market conditions and economic shocks.

To tackle this we have introduced the Business Resilience Programme partnering with leading accountants and business advisers, BDO.

In this FREE offer you will receive 12 hours of one-to-one support that will help you to identify critical business issues quickly, and provide action items for consideration.

Key areas for consideration may include:

  • Strategy
  • Customer Markets
  • Financial Management
  • Operations
  • Human Resources
  • Leadership
  • Governance

The support will include the following key components:

  • Desktop Research – BDO will complete an initial background search surrounding your business and the environment in which it operates and will outline the potential challenges.
  • Business Diagnostic and Stakeholder Interview – This will involve a pre-workshop one-to-one telephone consultation with BDO to uncover first hand the challenges you and your business may be facing in the current economic climate.
  • The Workshop – Time to talk business.  Get together with BDO, using a virtual conference call facility, where you will focus on the key issues identified and assess the impact on business resilience.
  • 90-day Action Plan – Plan for the future. The outcome of the meeting will be documented into a 90-day action play to help management address the issues that have the greatest impact on your business.



Planning for the future

We’re not going to solve all of the above challenges, but we can provide an extra pair of eyes over the business and help you to step back and focus on the key priorities.  The coaching time will typically be spilt into approximately 5 or 6 coaching sessions over a 3 month period.

Business coaching works best if you have an open mind, are willing to take risks, and are accountable for taking action between sessions.  Your business adviser will help by providing you with templates, by asking the right questions to flesh out your business ideas and by acting as a sounding board.  Throughout the support, you will responsible for implementing agreed actions and for making any management decisions – it is your business after all!
