Accelerating the increase in the equity value of your business – and why it makes sense even if you never plan to sell… with Phil Ives – Bury (13 March 2018)

This is a unique opportunity to experience the benefits that Academy members gain each month as they access world class expert speakers, share learning and take part in peer board sessions to gain the view of other business leaders on their own particular challenges or opportunities in a confidential forum.

For our March meeting we will be joined by Phil Ives. Phil is a partner in Shirlaws Group and in Assay Advisory, specialises in fast growth businesses, runs interactive, informal and entertaining sessions focused on what you can do to increase equity value; why doing this doesn’t necessarily involve increasing profits or revenue – and why it makes great sense even if you never plan to sell.

More about the meeting:
The objective of the meeting is to give you an insight into how membership works and the benefits it brings to you and your business. You’d get a taste of what life is like being an Academy member and will have the opportunity to meet some of current members who will explain how membership has benefited them personally and professionally. There is no cost to attend other than your time.

To experience the peer group first-hand and what it delivers, attendees come along with a genuine business challenge and see how a variety of opinions, experiences and different perspectives can really impact on your decision making, direction and growth.
