What's working in business development?

This is a tough time for many small businesses. What is working for Finding True North?
  • Doing good work, which is satisfying and builds reputation
  • Taking time to deepen some of the relationships I make in networking, to build referrals
  • Making it easier for clients to benefit from coaching, by brokering government funding
  • Adding new 'routes to market,' including Social Media.
  • Keeping an eye on cash flow, but not to the detriment of relationships with suppliers
  • Using spare time to invest in training
  • Maintaining relationships with existing clients and following up on new contacts
  • Using a coach to help me to step back from the business, provide fresh perspectives, and recognise what is going well.
