About the event

There are few challenges that don’t benefit from talking over your options. The Sounding Board offers a unique opportunity to discuss the challenges facing your business with leading entrepreneurs and professionals, helping you take it to the next stage. Importantly, our team have all ‘been there’ by either scaling significant businesses or working closely with those that have. We understand the highs and lows of building a business and take a refreshingly pragmatic approach to both. Our programme has helped around seventy businesses decide their next step.

As we enter what is likely to be a difficult trading period, the theme of this half-day seminar is around sharing exepriences of managing the effects of suppliers, customers and other stakeholders who find themselves in financial difficulties. While the presentations will set the scene, it is the break-out discussions where we feel most value will be gained.

Who is it for?

All businesses great and small who aspire to improve - our main requirements from you are enthusiasm and ambition!
