Growth to Sustainability - The Five Stages of Business Growth
Mon 7 November 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
During this workshop we will examine if an entrepreneur/owner can delegate responsibility to others to improve the managerial effectiveness of a fast growing and increasingly complex enterprise? Further, will this action be true delegation with controls on performance and a willingness to see mistakes made, or will it be abdication, as is so often the case? Will there be enough to satisfy the great demands growth brings (often requiring a willingness on the owner’s part to tolerate a high debt-equity ratio) and a cash flow that is not eroded by inadequate expense controls or ill-advised investments brought about by owner impatience?
In this masterclass we will cover:· Increasing Market Competition – you will start attracting unwanted attention, how do you deal with it?
· Accounting Management – doesn’t matter about the size of the business, keeping organised will make replication of growth easier
· Moving into New Markets – exploring multiple markets, rules & regulations, feasibility analysis (as if you were starting again from stage one)
· Adding New Products/Services – keeping innovative and competitive now that you have attention from competitors
· Expanding Existing Business – how big and how quickly, don’t get clouded by the £££
· VC/Funding/Mergers - what are the choices and where are the pitfalls, make sure you have a good lawyer, they will pay for themselves. How you set out your company (seminar 1) is crucial. You could risk losing your company if you do not assign right ownership. Giving shares and equity away will mean you start losing control, how you give it away will determine that YOU keep control of your company.
· How do you deal with all this stress? What does it take on your body? Keeping a healthy mind is crucial to not go all Steve Jobs.
