The workshop aims to focus on the following key areas:

  • Understanding the difference between operational and strategic thinking and how to implement strategic planning within your business including taking your team on this journey.
  • What it means for a business to introduce an investor. How does this compare to growing a business using bank finance?
  • Options for family businesses to grow their wealth and transition their assets to their children.
