If a day spent away from the everyday 'noise' of running your business with the help of award-winning business experts would be useful, then read on...

Our Business Planning Days have helped some of the UK's most successful SMEs. They've been designed to make businesses fighting fit and ready to face the short and mid-term future in the best possible shape, whatever their circumstances.

  • Sense-check and adapt your current plans

  • Run through alternative scenarios

  • Create a new plan for the new normal

Many businesses are re-evaluating and adapting their business plans and sales and marketing strategies. So, if you're looking for a fresh pair of eyes from a team of experts who can help with your planning, come and spend a day with us, either in person or online.

We'll even give you your money back if you're not happy. We can't say fairer than that.

An outline of the day

We've developed an agenda that helps you create an action plan for the next stage of your business journey.

1. What's holding back growth?

Is there too much 'noise' in the business? 


Are you focussing on the right things?

2. What does good look like?


What is the vision and what are the goals?

We explore this for you, your team and the business. 


We challenge you to see what is possible.

3. How close to your goals are you?


Are you already on track, if not what needs to change and how?

We bring in external benchmarks for competitor companies in your space.

4. We create your plan.

Simple, practical and with measures and responsibilities for each of your team.

Ideas get turned into actions, we make sure the day doesn't become just a day out.

The GHJ Team

Each of the team has run consultancies and marketing agencies where we were trusted with multi-million pound budgets and tasked with driving growth for brands in the UK and around the world.

We set up GHJ to offer the same skills and support but this time aimed directly at entrepreneurial, dynamic, challenger businesses who are led from the front by their charismatic owners. It gave us more interesting clients, more interesting businesses and more fun. But most importantly, it delivered better results for our clients. 

For the past 8 years we have worked behind the curtain with some of the most successful entrepreneurial businesses in the UK. We've learnt what works and what doesn't and how to help our clients achieve their goals.
