PLANNING

Do you feel more comfortable and in control when you know, what you have to do, by when and how you’re going to do it? Plan2Action will help bring your Vision to life by developing a practical pathway to get you there. This means keeping you on track and kicking goals…

actioN & ACCOUNTABILITY

The key step in bringing your Vision to life is execution. With our monthly or quarterly meetings, we will monitor and review your action plan, so you are supported from idea to execution with accountability. Plan2Action is an insurance policy for your action plan.

REVIEW YOUR SUCCESS!

You’ve had a busy year, now it’s time to review, learn and celebrate. The Annual Business Review process collates all the significant events, actions, decisions, client information and much more. With this document you will be prepared for any event or opportunity that comes along.

SYSTEMS & PROCESS EFFICIENCY

You want to get more done in less time. But you don’t have time to do an efficiency review. Plan2Action can undertake a detailed review of your systems and processes to bring you increased productivity, more time and a sigh of relief.

STRATEGIC PLANNING FACILITATION

Documenting the reason you are in business and how it all began is an important story that shouldn’t stay in your head. By working through Plan2Action’s Strategic Planning workbook, you can document your business purpose and history, where you want to be and how you are going to get there.

RECRUITING AND RETAINING THE RIGHT PEOPLE

People are your biggest asset, and generally the most challenging part of your business. Recruiting the right people can be expensive and time consuming. Avoid recruitment fees and allow Plan2Action to find you the right person for the right role using our effective and detailed recruitment process.

ABOUT ME

I am Anna Hughes, from Sydney, Australia. For 18 years I’ve worked with small and medium businesses and witnessed continuous time restraints for planning and action. I’ve seen passion, commitment and enthusiasm dampened by the day to day challenges that take time and energy. Plan2Action was developed to ensure your plans and ideas are actioned! My passion is to guide and organise businesses to achieve their goals, monitor their performance and review and celebrate their success.

​My experience is from the education industry, and Professional Practice (Chartered Accounting) where I’ve worked with many clients in a variety of industries. I’ve a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and Accounting (Macquarie University) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Management (Macquarie Graduate School of Management).

Managing Partner

In my businesses, Anna was the driver and the mechanic in the planning process. I found I needed someone who was focused on process and timing, who would manage around schedules, and overall, would be in charge of this business planning process. Such a process won’t work well if it isn’t communicated. Our staff were all involved at each stage, business information was transparent and Anna enabled the wheels to be oiled so they weren’t squeaky for very long. I recommend Anna for managing the business planning journey that you wish to take.

The Friday Collective has benefitted enormously from working with Anna. She has helped us have the conversations we needed to have, and guided us towards financial and structural solutions that will set us on course for a successful future. As a result, we feel better informed, better equipped and more confident about our business. We hope to have Anna involved in our professional lives for many years to come.

Former GM

Anna undertook the business planning for Backpackers Buddy for 6 years while I was General Manager. I found her guidance invaluable. We always knew exactly what we were aiming for but were never restricted by inflexible plans or goals. The documented review at the end of each year was always a boost to staff as it would show us what we set out to achieve and how we performed. We were able to attribute additional gains to the staff members with high performance. I would highly recommend Anna’s services.
