One Plan, One Board, One Focus: The Action Canvas

When businesses flounder, it’s rarely work ethic that’s to blame. Likewise, when businesses succeed, it’s not because they outworked their competition. From the humblest of small businesses to high-flying startups, from regional companies to mutli-national corporations, the difference between failure and success is clarity.

Focusing on what matters and aligning actions in a way that’s both feasible and effective is easier said than done. This workshop will help you get all your big ideas out of your head and into a simple-to-use visual tool. It will help you identify and answer the hardest questions your business faces, and turn those answers into an action plan you and your team can use to move forward, faster.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is for two types of business leaders: those with a strong vision who don’t want to get slowed down on the way to achieving it, as well as those whose vision may have taken a backseat to circumstances. Whether you’re new to business or a seasoned veteran, this process is likely to teach you something new!


Your Workshop Presenter - Vinko Buble

Vinko has 20 years of startup experience as a founder and a software engineer and has co-founded several startups. One of his previous startups, Where Inc., was purchased by Paypal in 2011.

Vinko mentors businesses as a SCORE Certified Mentor, MCE Top Gun Mentor, and independently as an advisor and board member. As Vinko says, “The world needs problem-solvers like you, tackling big challenges. But the world doesn’t need you to try, it needs you to succeed. Which is hard. Unlikely, in fact. I know, because I’ve been there. Early in my career, I had my share of failures, before joining with and learning from some of the smartest, most effective entrepreneurs anywhere. My biggest successes haven’t come from thinking big, they came from focused, practical action. The key is knowing exactly what to do, one thing at a time.
