BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MEETINGS

The first year in your new pub will be the most challenging, as you are getting to grips with building your business and managing all your overheads and cash flow effectively. To aid your journey you will have a structured program of visits throughout your first year. During these visits our Business Development Partners will assess how the business is progressing and agree any further action or support you require.

Your Business Development Partner will conduct business development meetings (BDM’s) with you at the end of months one, three, six, nine and twelve.  These meetings will be minuted and you will receive a copy of these minutes detailing agreed discussion points and actions.
