Putting innovation into action

We strongly believe it is vital for businesses to keep doing business during these uncertain times, and that it is vital to have a plan for the next 3-6 months to help ensure you survive with your business intact. Start with our Business Health Check and Brand Clarity Scorecards, and then listen to our webinars - Crisis Management in Challenging Times and Leadership in a Crisis.

This programme is for you if you are a small business owner with up to 10 people and you want to grow your business.

Have you dipped into lots of off the shelf 'growth' and self-help programmes and found they don't really meet your needs?

Designed specially for you - by using the value of a supportive business community, being accountable to a business expert, and uncovering the right action-plan for you, growth can be achieved.

We work with clients who…

  • are only innovative when your customers ask you to be
  • concerned you can’t see what your R&D team is achieving
  • are kept awake at night by fear of failure and risks to your business
  • are focused so much on today that plans for tomorrow are overwhelmed
  • are not confident enough to invite partners into your business (and definitely not competitors)

hgkc have helped us invent a whole new way to manage and communicate about our innovation projects – BAU, “the pond”, Blue-sky, horizons, Game Plans and RACI techniques have enabled us to focus on the key projects and direction for our innovation at TasteTech.
