To Grow or Not to Grow: That is the Question!


Cement your business growth success 

Growing your RTO business should be a planned strategy rather than happening by default or ‘good luck’.
Join Tamara Simon for her presentation ‘To Grow or Not to Grow’ to get ideas and practical strategies for the next steps in boosting your RTO’s profits and productivity.

Many RTOs grow very quickly – be it turnover, staff and/or students – without developing and implementing the necessary strategy and essential systems for success.

So is it a surprise when staff become overwhelmed and burnt out? Mistakes keep happening? Deadlines get missed? Compliance is seen as a 4-letter word? Turnover becomes great but cash flow tight? And referrals hard to find?

If you’re unsure about how to grow your RTO in such challenging times, or are in the midst of growth and drowning in overwhelm, then this practical and straight-talking presentation is for you.

Cement your business growth success and discover in this session:

  • 5 common mistakes when growing your RTO
  • Where your RTO sits in the 4 phases of growth
  • Why growing is not always the best strategy
  • 7 essential decisions to consider before growing your RTO
  • 3 simple strategies to manage your RTO whilst growing rapidly

Participants will walk away with ideas and strategies to implement straight away and a copy of the ‘To Grow or Not to Grow’ checklist.
