As you may be aware, this year The Icehouse has undertaken an important strategic review of our offering for Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs), to ensure we are future fit in delivering to the evolving needs of NZ SMEs. We have a strong formula of enabling transformation, but we’re not perfect and we know we don’t have all the answers, so we have rolled up our sleeves to get the facts so we can then better respond to the current and future needs of NZ’s owner managed SMEs. Thank you to all of you who have contributed to this. The insights we have gained have been rich and exciting.
We have validated that our customers have four core needs to unlock their potential – (1) to learn, (2) to apply that learning, (3) to be held to account and (4) to connect with others. As trusted advisors what you expect from us is relevant, real-time, real-life, future-focused expert content. We have moved from discovery, which was about who and why, into design and develop which takes us to what and how. Stay tuned.
This year, we have continued to build our coaching and advisory talent pool and have welcomed a number of new delivery partners into the Icehouse stable.
Because all three Owner Manager Programmes this year, and the first one in 2020, are sold out we are excited about putting a fourth OMP in the calendar for 2020. In 2020 we will celebrate the 50th OMP and the 1000th OMPer.
Congratulations on more alumni achievements and events:
And for many of you, you will have had the pleasure of experiencing Sam Thom and his Ultimate Music Quiz as one of your OMP Team Challenges. Sam has been doing this for us for last 6 years at every OMP. We thought this could be of interest for an end of year function or an event with your team. Sam has run events for groups of 10 people to over 500. www.ultimatequiz.co.nz To enquire about dates & pricing contact Sam Thom on 021 979 979 / email@example.com He’d love to provide some fun and competitive entertainment for you!
