The Event
We would like to invite you to join us, for what is the fifth in our series of interesting and insightful sessions designed for owner-managed businesses.  Over coffee and a complimentary breakfast, we discuss key topics affecting you; a morning of networking, advice and relationship-building with some of the region’s leading professional services firms - Bermans, Lloyds Bank, DSG Chartered Accountants and Resourcery Group.

The Topic
The next event in our series focuses on the importance of Succession Planning.  Succession Management lies at the heart of successful business strategy; not only ensuring business continuity, future-proofing key positions, but also in identifying, developing and recruiting leaders that will drive delivery of future strategy and value.
Succession Planning is key in driving organisational success, aligning People and Business Strategy.  Whatever success may be for you, be it revenue/margin growth, geographical expansion, PE exit, trade sale, IPO, MBO, etc, formulating a succession plan is essential.

We draw on the experiences and opinions of our expert panellists who will share their journeys with us, focusing in on People & Profit, and discussing the merits of Succession Planning and its role in driving value in a business.
