How do you successfully scale up your organisation?  Whether you are a business, social enterprise or charity, you may well be experiencing growing pains. How do you maintain your organisation’s financial health whilst rapidly expanding the work that you do? How do you motivate different stakeholders in a complex sales or pitch situation?  How do you develop your leadership team so that it suits a larger, more complex organisation? How do you work effectively with partners and how do you professionalise your processes without drowning in bureaucracy?

Carbon Limiting Technologies have been helping to scale up organisations in the low carbon sector for over ten years.  This masterclass is based on their experience of working with both businesses and non-profit organisations and will provide you with a practical toolset for overcoming the most common growing pains.

By the end of this masterclass, you will be able to:

  • Analyse your current and future team mix so that your leadership, culture and team meet new expectations
  • Develop propositions that motivate different stakeholders in a complex sales or pitch situation to win sales and tenders
  • Use a simple planning tool to ensure that rapid organisation growth doesn’t mean financial disaster.
