Strategic Business Planning

GOLD Cohort 12

Following LEAD™, on the twelve-month long GOLD™ program you learn how to create, implement and review strategy in your own and other businesses by experiencing ‘being’ a Non-Executive Director (NED) in other organisations and ‘having’ a NED in your own company.

GOLD™ focuses on business planning, strategic leadership, change management, decision making processes and culture change. You will work with a small group of like-minded peers.

You are supported to work in each other’s organisations through a range of simulated board meetings and workshops, and develop an annual action plan linking your vision with your day-to-day activities.

At the end of GOLD™, delegates can progress onto our GAIN™ program with its focus on the leadership of innovation and ensuring sustainable competitive advantage.

Delegates can then decide if they wish to go on to do an MBA at the University of Gloucestershire, as successfully completing LEAD™, GOLD™ and GAIN™ provides the professional qualification entrance requirement.

Who is GOLD™ for?

The twelve-month long GOLD™ program supports owner-managers, business leaders and senior managers of small to medium sized enterprises (SME) to work in each other’s organisations through a mixture of simulated board meetings and workshops with a focus on the matters that SME boards should be considering.

Reason to do GOLD™?

We assist you to develop your mission, purpose, vision, values and corporate goals with an annual action plan that links your vision to day–to-day activities. Together with your peers, you will be coached on how to prepare board packs, understand and interpret appropriate management and financial information, create a dashboard report with relevant key performance indicators and produce a prioritised sales pipeline.

Through the monthly simulated board meetings, you will experience ‘being’ a Non-Executive Director (NED) and receive the impact of ‘having’ a NED within your organisation. This will directly improve your performance in your own board and senior management meetings plus give you the confidence to become a NED and/or engage a NED as you further develop yourself and your company.
