Henley Coaching Business Boot Camp 2021
Starting and growing a business is a challenge. The one consistent feedback from new coaches is 'we have learned how to coach but how can we learn how to run a business?' This five-day programme is Henley Business School's answer to that question. A five-day business growth boot camp to help you get fit (or get fitter) to run your coaching practice.
By the end of the programme you will be able to:
- tailor your proposition
- understand your customer
- start promoting your business
- understand social media effectively, so that you can generate leads
- make sales
The programme is delivered by the Rebel Business School, who are experts in helping entrepreneurs find better ways to start and manage their businesses, with input from our experts at Henley Business School including Professor Jonathan Passmore, Jurek Sikorski and a host of successful coaches and entrepreneurs.
As a global provider of coach training, we have coaching students across the world. This event will therefore run online, to enable you to access it from wherever you are in the world. The Boot Camp will be held between 5-9 July 2021. The joining instructions and Zoom link will be mailed to participants a few days before the programme start date.
