A deal has been struck between the German American Business Association (GABA) and Business Planning HQ to utilise HyperQuestion technology in a 1 Day Business Planning Masterclass at Plug and Play Techcenter on April 20th 2012.

Following several months of discussions and negotiations, the unique Business Planning HQ MasterClass event format will be coming to Silicon Valley. The event will be held on April 20th at The Plug and Play Techcenter in Sunnyvale California.

Regine Staufenberg, Business Development Manager at GABA, says, "We are proud to be the first US based organisation to bring this unique event format to Silicon Valley. The relationship with Business Planning HQ highlights the innovation in services that we are able to offer to our members and the business community.”

In the technology accelerated consulting session, up-to 50 businesses will be facilitated through a structured process using HyperQuestion™ technology to create their own 40 page strategic business plan. Marcus Tarrant, Founder of Business Planning HQ says, "This approach enables us to mirror the one-on-one attention that would typically be offered in a consulting engagement, however deliver the same level of strategic input in a group environment, this produces significant time and cost advantages for attendees."

At the end of the 6 hour power packed session, each attendee will be provided with their own 40 page strategic business plan in editable format.
