Navigate your business through uncertainty post COVID19

caleup North East are delighted to be working in partnership with Duo Global Consulting to provide a roadmap to help companies navigate change following the Covid 19 economic crisis.

In a time where change and uncertainty is going to be on the horizon for many months to come, how your team flex through the flux of uncertainty will determine your long-term success, both at an individual level, and together as an organisation.

You are invited to join us on this unique webinar with Laura Weaving & Sarah Callender of Duo Global Consulting, who have years of experience helping businesses of all sizes successfully navigate and engage their team with change.

In this webinar, we will take you through three imperative layers of your business to help you determine how prepared you are to navigate the flux:

Business Level - the right strategy is needed at the top to drive business continuity.

Leadership & Management level - resilience through change requires strong leadership with your leaders & managers ultimately determining whether your team will fall apart, or come together.

Employee Level - change is personal, and to really address this at an organisational level you need to understand the individuals in your business.

In a time where change and uncertainty is going to be on the horizon for many months to come, how your team flex through the flux of uncertainty will determine your long-term success, both at an individual level, and together as an organisation.

For those who are not already on the Scaleup North East Programme, a 1-2-1 follow up with a Scaleup Partner will be arranged to assess your eligibility - based in Tyne and Wear, Northumberland or County Durham; employing more than 2 people with a turnover of more than £100k pa - as your company may be eligible for a grant to support a percentage of the costs associated with participation in the full Flex and Flux programme.

This will be delivered by:
