The Accelerate programme is designed for owners and managers of established, medium size businesses with $500,000 - $10m in annual turnover and 5-50 employees (although any business with exceptional growth potential will be considered).

Over six months participants will receive a unique blend of business training focused on accelerating their capability in sales, leadership, brand, planning, finance and developing a growth mind-set with professionally facilitated individual and group coaching sessions.

The overall the objective is to accelerate your capabilities as an owner or manager which will help you take control of your growth; whether that be to grow faster, re-ignite your growth trajectory or make your growth more manageable.

Accelerate is generously subsidised thanks to funding from Destination Rotorua in recognition that these programmes make a real difference to local business communities. The retail cost of the programme is more than $3,000.

Thanks to additional support from Firestation and Employers & Manufacturers Association BoP, organisations that receive the subsidy will be able to participate in the programme for as little as $299+GST per month (conditions apply).
