Learn How to Use MAUS Masterplan in a Webinar

Wednesday, July 29 2020 – 10am to 12noon


Turn your vision into reality. Often, we have a series of ‘snapshot pictures’ in our head of what our business will look like, however, to turn these ‘happy snaps’ into reality we all need a plan…

  • Identify your key product/s and or service/s
  • Identify your key competitors, and 
  • Identify your target market and audience/s…and then
  • Develop a PLAN of ACTION

If you need to write a business plan, whether it be for gaining finance, complying with requirements, or to spend some time working on your business (rather than in it), this is the webinar for you.

MAUS MasterPlan LEAN will save you 50-90% of the time and give you the best chance of successfully creating a highly professional business or marketing plan tailored to your business. 

Phi Daly, from Build Grow Run, has been working with start-ups and experienced business owners for over 20 years, he will take you step by step through how to put a Business Plan in place.

The MAUS MasterPlan business planning software is more advanced than a set of templates that you modify. It is a premium technology platform that works in the background to automate and calculate as much as possible for you;

  • It has automated budget calculations, which is in turn placed throughout the document as financial graphs and tables.
  • Phil will expertly guide you through each step of the “write your plan” process, which ultimately compiles into a complete plan with a click of a button. This plan can then be edited further in Microsoft Word.
  • Milestones can be flagged and added into a ‘milestone deadline project’ on the fly. Add your milestones as they pop into your head with a click of a button, so you don’t forget anything important!

What this gives you, is a very insightful and impressive business plan and/or marketing plan, that will take LESS of your precious time to create. Even better, it will be a plan that has an accurate pathway forward to improving your business. MAUS MasterPlan is an award-winning business planning software, supported by Entrepreneurship Facilitators – Richmond Tweed Headswww.buildgrowrun.com.au that has been mastered by over 20 years of ongoing development and is created by acclaimed author and winner of the 1999 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, Peter Hickey.
