Overcoming the dilemmas of attracting the top talent that will accelerate your tech business’s growth - discussion dinner for tech company CEOs
Recruiting the right senior talent is one of the most important decisions founders of ambitious tech businesses have to make.
It is also one of the hardest balancing acts.
The best people are already well rewarded and have many suitors. Offer too little and you won’t get them, but offering too much will be an expensive headache. It may even create burdens that jeopardise your future cashflow and profitability. Similarly timing is critical yet hard. Bring them in too early and they will be a costly and under-utilised asset, but they take a long time to find so leaving it too late will damage your business at a critical time.
How to resolve this in order to attract and incentivise top talent, within the financial strictures of a fast-growth company, is the theme of next discussion dinner for CEOs at fast growth tech companies.
Our over-dinner discussion will allow our guests to informally discuss such topics as:
- How to decide the right package?
- How can the tax be structured to minimize the cost?
- How to reward and incentivise exceptional performance?
- When and how to start looking?
- Insights on these and other critical dilemmas will be shared by fellow experienced entrepreneurs.
It will be, as always, an informative and intimate discussion as tech company owners share insights, experiences and challenges.
We’ll be having two short 10-minute talks from people who have faced this dilemma and who will share their experiences, followed by a private discussion over an exceptional meal for our 10 guests, all owners of fast growth technology businesses.
To start off discussions, our speakers at the dinner are:
- Lee Davy-Martin. Lee is both a partner at Wilson Wright, where he specialises in advising fast growth technology companies, and also the finance director and co-founder of envirotech start-up PolyMateria, which has recently successfully recruited a COO, CMO and other key positions with people from senior positions from such multinationals as Shell and Unilever.
- To be announced shortly - the CEO and founder of an established technology business who will discuss the dilemmas he has faced, his decisions and their consequences
Who should attend:
This event is exclusively for CEOs and Financial Directors of fast growth companies, especially those in the Fintech, Envirotech and Meditech sectors.
If you are looking to achieve fast growth and are currently facing the dilemma of when and how to recruit senior-level talent, and how to create an affordable package that will strongly incentivize them, then this event will be invaluable.
