Small Business Programme

Shift from urgent to strategic.

When running a small business, you face new challenges every day. Your resources are stretched, competition is fierce and you have to keep up with a constantly changing marketplace.

The Vistage Small Business Programme gives you a forum to rise above the urgent and focus on what’s most critical: the tough, strategic decisions that will drive your business forward and grow it faster.

Designed for the challenges of small business owners.

Challenge:

You currently make all of the big decisions on your own and you worry that you may be missing something.

Solution:

Get unbiased feedback from about a dozen other local business leaders from non-competing industries. Many of them have stood where you’re standing now, providing you with invaluable insight, knowledge, feedback—and 100% confidentiality. Their only agenda is to help each other succeed.

Challenge:

You’re in charge of so many roles at your company that you are in danger of burning out.

Solution:

Learn how to create better work-life balance from other business owners who have faced the same issue. Gain greater insight into the leadership skills and processes you’ll need for more efficient and effective operations.

Challenge:

You’re mired in day-to-day business operations and haven’t been able to stay ahead of trends.

Solution:

Connect with peers and experts for guidance, resources and advice for making strategic decisions that will lead to long-term growth.
