Heritage Business Planning in Challenging Times

Louise Emerson representing Creative United presents a webinar examining heritage business planning for 2023 and beyond.

This webinar took place on 08/02/23.

Over the last few years, the Heritage landscape has been greatly affected by both Covid-19 and, more recently, the Cost of Living Crisis. An increase in the rate of change has put many organisations in difficult positions.

A robust business plan is an essential document for any organisation navigating these unchartered waters.

Whether you are adapting an existing business plan or starting from scratch, this webinar brings together key ideas and guidance to help you plan effectively. Louise demonstrates why taking the time to create a business plan and adapt it to reflect the current changes is well worth the effort.

This is a practical webinar, outlining how and what you need to do to enable you to make the best decisions to ensure you can weather the present pressures.

You will be empowered to investigate your organisation robustly, make connections between the elements of your operation and, crucially, be equipped to implement your changes smoothly.
