The Blueprint Growth Institute Mission and our 7 Essentials Scorecard

The best way to know our business growth strategy is to understand how we are applying the 7 Essentials Scorecard to achieve exponential growth.

After writing the Blueprint to a Billion, David Thomson started The Blueprint Growth Institute in 2006 to focus on a mission: to help companies and business units achieve exponential growth. David and his team are applying their insights into actions in order to turn ordinary companies into exponential growth companies -- that become even better places to work, invest in and reshape our lives.

Today, The Blueprint Growth Institute is quickly evolving into multiple lines of business: keynote speaking, business development advisory and consulting services, and media all backed by a research initiative that is continuously turning out insights for management teams and investors so they can apply the latest insights and actions to achieve exponential growth with returns.

David serves as the Chairman of the Blueprint Growth Institute where he spends his time keynote speaking to management teams and conferences, leading structured business growth workshops and leading CEO panel discussions and interviews.
