We will also as a team discuss and support each other with:
- Creating an overall marketing strategy

When: 8 am until 12 pm on the last Friday of every month
Where: Merseymade, Unit 2, Chancery House, 98 Paradise Street, Liverpool, L1 3HJ
Sessions will typically follow this format:
- 8.00 am – Welcome and introductions, getting settled

- 10.30 am – 11.30 am – Guest Speaker with Q&A session

Action Learning is a process of insightful questioning and reflective listening. At each meeting, business leaders will be invited to share a challenge that they would like support with. Other members are initially asked to pose questions to provoke reflection and then have an opportunity to share any thoughts or advice they have after the individual has thoroughly explored the issue and developed their own thinking. Each group member will have the opportunity to gain valuable insight from the group and facilitator using this technique.
