Abica teams up with Shirlaws to help customers Thrive and Survive in recession
Successful collaboration is crucial in today’s business environment and telecoms specialist abica is offering customers free access to leading business consultancy advice to help them conquer the challenges posed by today’s recessionary climate.
Glasgow-based abica, the straight talking mobile network for business, has teamed up with global consultancy Shirlaws and will be offering customers a place on a bespoke half-day workshop.
The Thrive and Survive event will focus on four main areas:
- Achieving a business’s vision through an economic downturn
- Identifying growth strategies and knowing when to apply them
- Improving the efficiency of resources to support growth
- Managing a business through its business life cycle
Robin Th’ng of Shirlaws will be leading the event. He specialises in executive coaching for CEOs, partners and directors, supporting them to have clarity and focus in their business and personal life. Robin joined Shirlaws UK in 2005, having worked in the education, research and professional services sectors within the construction and property industry for over 30 years. He has a Bachelor degree in Architecture, an MBA and PhD and is a fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and a registered mentor for Business Mentoring Scotland. His career began as a Research Fellow in ABACUS, University of Strathclyde where he developed the first generation of computer generated architectural software.
Scott Allison, managing director at abica, said: “We have worked with Shirlaws in the past and it has been hugely helpful in developing our own business. We hope our customers will get the same sort of benefits and leave the day with a lot of ideas to take back to their companies”. Scott said abica was determined to forge tight relationships with its customers and help them grow their businesses to mutual benefit. He added: “Many businesses see their phone bill as an unwelcome fixed cost. We are trying to give customers as much value as we can and develop the way they think of their telecoms provider and improve the level of service they receive in innovative and unusual ways. ”
