The objective of RosebankPlus+ is to provide SMEs with the support and resources to maximise their potential.
40% of businesses on a national average can be described as “struggling.” A further 20% of businesses need help with growth strategies. Most SMEs do not have access to the specialist skills and knowledge of corporate and multi-national companies, so who can you turn to when you need a clear direction on how to move forward?
The RBA endeavours to answer that question with its business development programme, RosebankPlus+.
A partnership between the RBA and member companies, RosebankPlus+ is designed to accelerate businesses by identifying a tailored, cohesive approach to development and growth at all stages of the business life cycle. It is more directive than a mentoring programme; and more personal, confidential and immediate than any financial programme.
All RBA member companies are invited to a free one hour confidential business review. And if you choose, further no-obligation help is provided to take your business from maybe less than optimum performance to operating with best practice and therefore more profit.
As every business has different needs, our team have a broad range of expertise on how to support you, or will quickly direct you to someone who can, whether you need mentoring with financial planning, strategic marketing, governance etc. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
The RBA through RosebankPlus+, hold, on a regular basis, workshops e.g. on how to measure success, motivational strategies, analytics and data management.
Here are some examples of the 2017 series:
In April, Step Change, world leading business strategists and entrepreneurs, in association with RBA and WABC, presented a one-morning-only “Stump the Strategist” showcase event.
Imagine your biggest business challenge solved in nine minutes, in front of a live audience, by some of the best strategists…
Now stop imagining! It happened that day.
RBA and CPBA members were invited to an opportunity for the highly interactive and engaging event, “Stump the Strategist” where the presenters attempted to solve any business or marketing challenge live in nine minutes. The strategists used their wealth of experience and knowledge to ensure that the strategies provided were targeted and specific to the questions posed by the attendees. After each challenge, the audience voted on whether the strategists were stumped or given a pass. They passed every time.
In July, BNZ and the RBA presented the ‘Game Changer’ and invited members to attend a fun, highly interactive, tech enabled business simulation that took them through the highs and lows of business ownership and management, all in the space of 2 hours.
They worked as part of a leadership team for a successful and growing Kiwi SME, being confronted with a series of real world business challenges.
The ‘Game Changer’ offers the opportunity to build your business acumen and understand the impact of all business decisions while competing against other teams of business peers.
As they enjoyed some friendly competition with the other teams seeking the same end game, the Icehouse Game Changer facilitator challenged their thinking around strategy terms of sales, marketing, operations, leadership, risk and finance.
RosebankPlus+ is one of the many benefits of our membership.
