Robert Craven works with ambitious owner-directors of fast-growing businesses who feel that they could be doing even better. Robert set up the first of several businesses (restaurant, cafe, training company, sound studio) in his final year at university.
He then spent five years running training and consultancy programmes for entrepreneurs at Warwick Business School. Running his own consultancy – The Directors’ Centre – since 1998, he is now one of the UK’s best-known speakers on growing your business.
Alongside numerous speaking engagements, Robert also does consulting work for, and is chairman or personal mentor to, a number of growing UK businesses.
Robert is the co-author, with Adam Harris, of the Check-In Strategy Journal (published by Wiley); a tool to map out your strategy and plans in real time, on paper, and map out your annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals and targets.
More importantly, it enables you to measure and monitor your results. It offers feedback, ideas and pointers to help you improve your performance.
It becomes a fundamental part of the planning and setting up of each week, month and quarter. Essentially, it helps you to take control of your schedule.
