Event description

Description

Continuing our series of national events, we’ll be delving into the topic of business growth. Regardless of the size of your business now, it’s crucial to think about how you want your business to expand, and the processes you need to put in place to achieve this.

Maximise the value of your membership; come and exchange your views with fellow design business owners over a drink; hear from the DBA and the speakers we’ve got lined up for you.

Our speakers are Trevor Cairns, CEO, LOVE Creative; and Nick Howe, Managing Director, Uniform.

They'll be discussing:

  • The personal leadership qualities needed from the MD and leaders in a growing business.
  • The risks and opportunities of growth.
  • Ensuring growth is scalable: how to put the right resources in place to achieve your growth targets.

This series of exclusive events is specifically for you to join with other members in your local area and discuss important business topics. The event is free to DBA members but spaces are limited and you must register in advance.

Places are limited.
