Designing your Business

Les Hammond will be launching his band new company called "Driving Risk Matters" at the December HBN monthly seminar.  For his last employer Les trained 9000 drivers within 21 days.  The event was the Olympics so of course the completion date was fixed in stone - and achieved.  Les was a Parachute Jumping Instructor so motivation and psychology are part of his high on his agenda and part of his DNA.

Les will be demonstrating the business logic and the psychology that he has used to design his new business.  It is an extremely well designed concept and will be truly disruptive product when it hits the market in the new year.  For any entrepreneur thinking of setting up a new business this is the way that you design and create a disruptive and highly competitive service product.

The agenda for the presentation will be

• Ice Breaker “Ooooh Behave” what’s the worst thing you have ever done….

• Driving for Work Risk Management (D4Wk) – what is Driving for Work?

• Why do we need to manage D4Wk?

• Must Do, Should Do, Could Do – a model to establish minimum standards

• Management Task Vehicle Driver Risk Contribution factors

• Interventions available to respond to D4Wk Risk

• What will you do next?

Designing you business proposition is probably the most important decision that any small business owner will make.  Benchmarking your business ideas is critical and HBN has a lot of expertise in this area.

    Not often you get to witness the launch if a brand new business. Les has been in preparation mode but now with his piece in the local press and today's presentation he has gone public

    Really sorry to miss Les's presentation, was looking forward to it. I have 2 meetings in Peterborough this afternoon, "Business Booster" seems to be flavour of the month. Long may it last, just not on a Friday afternoon. Hopefully I will catch up with most of you next week.

    Really looking forward to hearing Les's take on the innovation behind business ideas. Experienced some of Les's enthusiasm for his subject when he was presenting to the Students at Huntingdonshire Regional College during Global Entrepreneur Week. I would highly recommend this event to any budding entrepreneur or small business owner.
