Please join us for our Scaling Up Business Growth Workshop on Wednesday 10th May 2023 with Bernard O’Brien & Ted Bonel – Entrepreneurs / Scaling Up Coaches.

Bernard & Ted will be presenting on How Culture and Systems can help you to align your company to scale. Learn from two seasoned entrepreneurs, what it takes to go from Lean Start Up to an Agile Scale Up.
