No Code Programme

For startups, no-code tools can be extremely valuable, as they allow them to quickly build custom software solutions that meet their specific needs. With no-code platforms, startups can create minimum viable products (MVPs) in a matter of days instead of weeks or months, enabling them to test their ideas and validate their assumptions before investing significant resources into development. Additionally, no-code platforms can be much more cost-effective than hiring a team of developers, which can be especially beneficial for startups with limited budgets. During the workshops, we will cover the following no-code tools: Airtable, WordPress, Canva, and Shopify.

Improving your Sales Process (In-Person Workshop)

In the sales function, we tend to talk about the “Sales Process” without considering that it is actually a process. Why is this?
One of the reasons may be that we are so focused on the end result, that we forget or do not have time to consider the efficiency and effectiveness of the sales process itself. In essence we don’t consider it as a process.
In this session, we will consider how using LSS can help you Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control your sales processes to meet your goals.
