Trade print services operation Graphic Warehouse is partnering business coach, ‘How To Wreck Your Business’ author and former print boss Stuart Mason to offer a free business growth and development programme. This includes a series of podcasts by Mason, which will be released weekly on the Graphic Warehouse website from Friday 9 February, and be followed by a series of workshops.
“A lot of small business owners think business coaching is unaffordable, but I’ve always had a business coach - having someone holding the boss to account is a valuable resource,” said Richard McCombe, MD of Graphic Warehouse and Matic Media. “Recognising the profound impact of mindset and strategic planning, Graphic Warehouse is committed to helping businesses proactively shape their destinies in 2024, and partnering with someone like Stuart, who knows the realities of running a print business, is a win-win situation. Coaching can help everyone.”
The free online workshops will start on 5 March. They will be led by Mason and include interactive elements. The first session will focus on providing “tips and tricks” for running a profitable business.
Mason will draw from his extensive experience in print, sharing his successes as the production and commercial director at Tradeprint (Cimpress/Vistaprint), and also candidly discuss the avoidable errors that resulted in the unexpected failure of his business on its 20th birthday.
To hear the podcasts and take part in the workshops - which will also be run by Mason - PSPs must pre-register on the Graphic Warehouse website.
