Getting into the right habits early on in your business journey will make life easier as the business grows and you find yourself under more time pressure. This workshop with business coach Gareth Allen will pose some useful questions to ask yourself, and give you some ideas to get the basics right. This is a fully funded training opportunity for businesses trading or registered in City of York Council or Harrogate Borough Council areas, delivered by GAP Coaching.

What will I learn?

In this one-hour event, you will find out how to:

  • Identify how best to spend your time to maximise business.
  • Adapt products and clients to identify those which are most profitable.
  • Identify what you are good at and what you are not.
  • Reconnect with why you are doing this.

Gareth Allen – Founder of Gareth Allen Performance Coaching and Business Coach

Gareth has a wealth of experience across many industries. Having occupied senior management roles in retail and banking, he now runs his own business and helps others to achieve their potential.

He takes a “whole life” approach to coaching, helping people to achieve their goals within the context of their wider world, rather than just focusing on one small area at a time.

“I am passionate about helping people to reach their goals. Just as important, I want people to enjoy their journey towards those goals. It’s not just about the destination, it’s about the road we travel.”
