Improve efficiency, productivity and profitability

Thursday, 19 October 2017 at the Needham House Hotel

Our guest speaker is Dr Katherine Bean from DVANA. Productivity in many UK businesses is poor. Companies are facing a number of challenges, such as finding and retaining qualified staff (known as the talent gap), which means that existing staff have to be more efficient and productive.

Katherine will demonstrate how business owners can use a tool called GREAT™ to streamline internal systems, processes and procedures; improve communication, collaboration and the use of technology to enable staff at every level to make better decisions and provide better customer service.CONNEXIONS
