When: Wednesday 7th February 2018 - 9:15am to 12:30pm

Where: Business Innovation Centre, Binley Business Park, Harry Weston Road, Coventry, CV3 2TX


This workshop is vital for every business to attend. The risks faced an organisation can manifest in a broad varieties of forms, and the consequences range from reputation damage, to loss of continuity and financial loss, through to criminal prosecution.

Advisers talk about managing the legals and governance of a business, and as a Director you have a number of responsibilities. But are you aware of what you need to do? This workshop will provide you with top tips to help you take necessary actions before they become expensive and time-consuming drains on you and the business.

In this workshop you’ll be going on safari. Moving around, you’ll get a chance to visit 4 different tables, to hear from a team of carefully selected subject matter experts. You will hear top tips at each table and be able to ask your questions directly of the specialist about the specific challenges faced by your business. If you want to benefit more – bring a colleague to take a different safari!
