One Good Turn…

hgkc and DISCsimple are excited to announce the return of our annual competition One Good Turn…!

Download the One Good Turn 2022 Business Plan Template here and enter our 2022 competition today.

Our competition started January last year as many businesses and their owners struggled to plan throughout the lockdowns caused by coronavirus. We at hgkc teamed up with long term collaborators DISCsimple to offer businesses the chance to win our services.

Our mission was to help businesses recover from the fall out of the pandemic and we want to continue our mission this year!

We are looking for business owners to enter their amazing business plans in order to win fantastic prizes! As the world appears to be returning to normal, we want to offer our support to businesses and help them plan their next steps!

We will have two incredible winners with even bigger prizes worth than £5000 each that include:

  • The “‘Be Awesome” Business Plan’. Worth £5000, you will win 20 hours of hands-on support from expert consultants, using some incredible tools to build and implement an Agile Focus Strategy for your business. This will equip you to make better unbiased team decisions, reduce uncertainty and move forward with confidence to explore new opportunities for your business in 2022.
  • ‘People are your Superpower’. Worth £5000, you will win an Engagement Multiplier benchmark survey* helping you discover where your company’s superpowers are, a DiSC workplace profile for up to 6 Directors or leaders to learn more about your superheroes, and executive coaching, followed by 15 hours of hgkc & DISCsimple consultant time to analyse your results and prepare a plan to help you supercharge your people for 2022.

It is very simple to enter:

The competition is open now and all you need to do is download and complete the One Good Turn 2022 Business Plan Template and tell us in 250 words why you think you deserve to win. You can record your 250 words as a video or sound file or send it in as a written statement – it is your decision.
