Upskilling and Business Buidling


To be successful in any industry requires the ability to think not just one or two years into the future but five or 10.

AFSA are providing an opportunity for you to work with a small group of like-minded operators to find answers to the challenges that can stop your progress and growth.

This will be a practical experience that is 100% relevant to you and your industry.

  • Understanding the key factors business needs to be prepared to respond to.


Finding the right Work/life balance – for your business

  • Understand what this means for you, your family and your staff – to find it you need to be able to define it.
  • What are you willing and not willing to do to make your desired life-work balance a reality – building a workable plan.
  • To achieve your ideal work/life balance get clear on what you need to introduce to your business
  • The essential process of defining internal roles and responsibilities within the team including yourself.
  • Defining you role and where you will bring the best value to the business now and into the future.


By the end of the two day experience each participant will be given a clear, proven framework to take the ideas and opportunities generated over the two days and to be able to execute these. This will be backed by real industry case studies to help you in the process.
