Business & People Planning

Is your business growing? Facing change? Or do you have problems you want to fix?

We have worked with over 800 hospitality businesses in Victoria over the past 20 years and in our experience we’ve found creating a plan by following these 5 steps and implementing it effectively is by far THE BEST WAY to achieve your business goals.

How To Plan Your Way To Success

After working with hospitality businesses for so long and encountering the same issues we have developed a 5 step system to assist hospitality businesses – it’s called our Plan Your Way To Success Program.

There are 5 steps to plan your way to success.

  • Step 1 – identify your business goals
  • Step 2 – outline strategies and actions to achieve those goals
  • Step 3 – assess the current capacity of your business
  • Step 4 – identify skills gaps
  • Step 5 – identify relevant training opportunities

Past clients have experienced the following;

“We experienced an increase in sales of well over half a million dollars and I credit a lot of that to the staff. Staff are confident in their roles and are motivated by having a recognised qualification.”

Stephen De Martin, Warrnambool Bowls Club

“I’m highly appreciative of the guidance provided by AVTES in recommending appropriate training, qualifications, and even specific modules which directly related to a wide range of different roles in Front of House, Food & Beverage, porters etc.The recommended training options were very effective in up-skilling employees as well as clearly linked to financial incentives,” 

Lyn Blight, Hilton South Wharf

We have also developed an advanced version of our program, for businesses with existing Business Plans and large teams. It’s called Workforce Development Program (Action Your Way To Success). It includes more in depth business planning and people planning, as well as assistance in implementing the plans – which is essential to actually reaching your goals and achieving success.

Program 1 – Plan Your Way To Success  – $499

  1. The first step in developing a strategy for your business is to determine what your business goals are.
  2. Then in the second step we outline strategies and tactics to reach those goals.
  3. In step three we look at your strengths and weaknesses to assess the current capacity of your business to reach your goals.
  4. Step four sees us analyse the capability of your current workforce to meet your goals and see if and where there are any skills gaps.
  5. Once we see where gaps exist, we look at how to get these skills and knowledge into your workforce in step five. We believe it is beneficial to use existing staff where possible and create personalised recommondations for the best training options for your staff and business. This may include short courses, full qualification training, or workshops that are tailored to your specific needs.
