This new free-to-attend half day workshop on the morning of Thursday 1 Nov will enable entrepreneurs, business owners and senior managers of companies – folk who wish to fast-track their businesses – to learn about and explore a variety of different and commercially-vital issues within a dedicated commercial environment. The wide-ranging subject matter will span cash-flow management to debt, private equity, business angels, management development and IP.

The format of the half day seminar will be an ongoing series of short, concise and informative presentations from the advisers with their colleagues and representatives manning stands in the adjacent space, dealing with enquiries face to face. Delegates will be free to choose whichever and as many presentations as required or spend more time networking and discussing growth issues with the advisers more privately.
