Future-proof your business with Tom Cheesewright

In response to the constantly changing landscape; Brexit, the pandemic and supply chain disruption, businesses have had to adapt and evolve their operations in recent years.

As we now unfortunately navigate another recession, we want to support our local businesses through this challenging time, including how best to protect themselves, but also, how best to grasp opportunities and continue growth and success.

Freeths and Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce are delighted to invite you to a new series of workshops with world-renowned applied futurist and growth expert, Tom Cheesewright.

These workshops are designed to help you future-proof your business, and are a fantastic opportunity for Greater Manchester businesses to gain some expert training around building sustainable success, even during a time of uncertainty.

The series consists of 2 workshops, during which Tom will help attendees to gain the tools they need to meet their goals and prepare for the next 12 months. These workshops are aimed at growing, scale-up businesses, who want to take a leap forward with support from one of the leading experts in the field.

Express your interest for these workshops

Workshop 1: Foresight and planning skills for business leaders
Date & Time: Thursday 20th April 9:30AM – 12:00PM + Lunch
Location: Manchester City Centre

In times of great uncertainty, planning for the future is a critical skill. In this session, Tom will share the skills of foresight that he teaches to leaders of global 500 companies around the world.

If you can carve out just 1% of your time to focus on the future, Tom will show you how to use that time effectively, to keep a watchful eye on the horizon for new opportunities – and any potential threats.

Workshop 2: Story-telling for business leaders
Date & Time: Thursday 18th May 14:30PM – 17:00PM + Networking
Location: Manchester City Centre

A vision of the future has little value unless you can share it with others and use it to drive change. Whether the audience is shareholders, board members, colleagues, customers or prospects, every leader needs to be able to tell a clear story of tomorrow.

In this session, Tom will teach you a simple framework for telling stories about the future, whether for corporate strategy or as the foundation of a marketing campaign to engage with new customers, helping you deliver long term sustainable growth



On the conclusion of workshop 2, we’ll host some networking drinks so you can connect and engage with these business leaders, so you can stay in touch and support each other into the future.
