Our Growth Ramp program is designed for business owners, CEOs or Managing Directors of companies with 5* – 11 employees who want to learn what they need to do to scale their companies. Different sessions focus on different topics, such as the leader’s roles and responsibilities, getting the product/market fit right, determining what customers are optimal, identifying the best strategies and tactics for growth, developing a growth plan and deciding what additional resources will be required, attracting and retaining the right people, managing financials and hiring an executive team.

You will need to submit prep-work at least one week before each session and to have competed a growth plan for their company by the end of the program.

Expert advice from business owners, CEOs or MDs who have started, grown and exited their own companies

Our Growth Experts are carefully selected current and former business owners, CEOs or Managing Directors who have experienced the full life-cycle of one or more growth companies. They teach and facilitate our structured programs and are passionate about helping you, as businesses leaders, to learn what you need to know to achieve your growth goals.

Using their own experiences and insights gained through starting, growing and exiting their own companies, the Growth Experts review your prep-work, teach, facilitate discussion, provide feedback, and help you develop a Company Growth Action Plan as well as a personal Leadership Development Plan. We limit our Growth Ramp program to 4 – 6 business owners, CEOs or Managing Directors per session so that we can personalise the experience and ensure that each participant has the chance to address issues specific to their challenges and opportunities.
