To help business leaders navigate these challenging times, and get set to thrive in 2021.

These will run every Monday from 16th November to 14 December, 1:30 – 2:30pm via Zoom.

The Lockdown Leaders Forum will be a trusted safe place (Chattam House Rules) to discuss current business challenges and find solutions, with a small number of like-minded business leaders.

The conversations will be free-flowing, structured around core topics and facilitated by Susannah Brade-Waring (MD, Aspirin Business) and Rich Burn (Project Manager, Dorset Growth Hub).The impact of Covid-19 has made us all need to become more agile and, with your input, we will apply this same approach to the weekly forums keeping it current, fresh and about you and your business. Aspirin Business are experts in business improvement projects and motivation and have many years’ experience in facilitating enjoyable and useful learning events for business leaders. They are a long-time trusted partner of Dorset Growth Hub.

Our team of Business Growth Consultants offer Dorset businesses 12 hours of fully funded business support through events, tailored 1-2-1 consultations and financial helpThe first event will be held on the 16th November at 1.30pm and will run every Monday at 1.30pm for five weeks until the 14th December.

Please join the first event to see if it is for you, and if it is, we ask that you commit to attending each session so you, and the rest of the group, get real value from it and build a trusted network and community of support. We kindly ask that you register only if you are a business owner, director or senior manager and the business has been trading for over 3 years, have at least 2 employees and have a turnover of over £100,000. This is to create a group of like-minded individuals that could be experiencing similar issues. We will be curating break out groups to ensure competitors can have open conversations.
