what is business development?

Business development can be described as ‘the creation of long-term value for an organisation from customers, markets, and relationships’. It is about designing and implementing new processes that lead to increased and sustainable growth. Although business development is ongoing, sometimes there is a need for a much more strategic and accelerated approach to successfully implement improvement. This could be, for example, introducing a new product or service, needing a new recruitment or training strategy, or wanting to scale the business through digitalisation.​

What Others say?

"I signed a contract with DiscoverChange because I was struggling to get new clients. We began with an intensive half day session during which Susanne asked me everything about my business and through discussion led me to a clear map of my sales funnel; helped me clarify my product offer; priced up my service packages. Susanne and Edward helped me to create an effective marketing strategy, improved my website, created me a Facebook page and online training platform, set up a lead generation and 121 booking process, and even provided 121 support in my live workshops. They also helped to schedule professional and branded posts, and I got my first enquiry almost immediately. If you run a business by yourself and are struggling to get more customers, I would recommend DiscoverChange, Susanne and Edward. Great job guys, thank you!"
