Thrive! Webcast

THRIVE Branding Feb EventBrite Apos

A webcast Masterclass event with Greg Savage and Chris Savage

Back by popular demand! The THRIVE Webcast is available to stream for the month of February with an ALL NEW final Q&A session.

At the end of 2020 Greg and Chris Savage delivered a three-part web series to help agencies owners optimise their organisations to seize the opportunities posed by the current recruitment landscape. As 2021 brings new prospects for agency owners this content is now more relevant than ever!

Having seen multiple economic crises and 80 years experience leading recruitment and professional services firms to recovery and beyond between them, Greg and Chris’ session provides 14 Pillars to Powering Growth through this unique, game-changing time. This ‘mini-MBA’ in growing recruitment businesses through changing conditions contains five and a half hours of takeaway content to help your business thrive in the new staffing landscape.

Perfect for Owners, senior managers and anyone who will influence your journey of re-invention and market share growth in 2021. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what some attendees to our 2020 session had to say about the content:

‘Lots of key takeaways! From combating clients reducing our fees, to refocusing our business for temp, to automating processes, business planning etc. Thank you Greg and Chris!’

‘Wow. I’ve written a list of 13 action points. I have personally billed over £15m in the last 19 years and I wish I had access to someone like Greg and Chris as a coach. Brilliant.’

‘Amazing session. Maybe the best of seen from Greg and Chris, and I’ve seen a lot!’

Now is the time to reinvent everything you do as a leader, and as a business, to capitalise on the opportunity on the horizon. The biggest error as the market recovers will be to simply ‘do everything the way you did it before’. Brilliant opportunities are and will emerge, but not everyone will be positioned to take advantage.

This proven ‘Roadmap’ gives you a template for success covering every area of your business where you should re-evaluate, recalibrate, reinvigorate and re-invent.
Attendees will receive access to parts one & two of the original session to stream at their leisure over February PLUS the opportunity to attend an all new Q&A session with Greg and Chris at 12pm AEDT on Thursday 25th February.
