WHAT IS THE WFA HOT SEAT?

The Hot Seat is a process to develop and/or test the viability of a business concept, or to develop and/or refine a business system. It can be applied to higher level business development concepts, or to systemic operational processes.

WHO IS THE WFA HOT SEAT FOR?

The WFA Hot Seat is for anyone with an idea, a business concept or even a business challenge they would like to test and gather quality feedback on.

Your assumptions may be challenged, it also likely that you experience some uncomfortable moments, but the end result will be well worth it.

WHY THE HOT SEAT?

You could share your idea and work one on one with a Business Consultant, but that would only provide you with ONE point of view.

The WFA Hot Seat provides the opportunity to benefit from the views, expertise and experience from 8 panel members from a diverse range of backgrounds and industry.

Just as sharing an idea at a dinner party with friends can often lead to some points you would not have thought of, the Hot Seat raises this scenario to a level well beyond.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The WFA Hot Seat takes place over 2 sessions:

Session #1 – The Hot Seat

The person in the Hot Seat presents their business concept, or system, to the panel. The panel asks a series of strategic questions to further develop and test the business concept, or develop and refine the business system.

Session #2 – The Pitch

The person in the Hot Seat returns to “Pitch” his/her refined business concept/idea to the panel.

The panel then questions, comments and provides further feedback on the refined concept.

It’s then over to the Hot Seater to get out there and implement the big idea.
