Strategic and coaching sessions (business development)
You are welcome to the offices of The Hidden Track. In the beautiful Lith, a small town by the river, we operate from an outdoor country house. You can work together in one of our studios, eat in the large kitchen or have an inspiring walk in the garden.
We love to set up (strategic) sessions and guide you to concrete game plans or a strategic direction. Also, we can (co-)write and develop your business plan. We like to figure out what you mean ánd where you're heading.
Some (cultural) projects have big developing costs and need some additional funding. We know which funds suit your event or proclaimed development you have as a business. Knowing them important, key is to know your company as well.
