Funding for Growth Event

The main limiting factors to any business achieving sustainable growth are cash flow, the quality of leadership and the ability of managers to execute the plan.

We are holding a free, in-person, event in partnership with Barclays, BGF, and The London Stock Exchange for business leaders to upskill and network with experts who can guide you through the next phase of your growth strategy.

In addition to tackling the key aspects of funding we’ll talk about the impact of getting talent and tech right for your business with a special focus on the current opportunities for business leaders to harness Artificial Intelligence properly. We’ll also have some amazing success stories to share.

21st November 2024

9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Nottingham Trent University

Did you miss the last event?

We ran this same event at The University of Leicester in March this year. It was such a great success, (we had 120 Senior Leaders attend for the whole day) that our speakers suggested re-running the same format in Nottingham.

The event will be even bigger and better than before with the addition of experts from the world of Tech, Talent and Culture.

"The ability to network with different people who I wouldn't normally come across in my working life has been spot on!"

"The event was very insightful. I learned a lot about growth share options which is something that we're considering as a business."
"This event has been phenomenal...we have talked about utilising new technology which the next generation is more invested in."
"Today was a really good day. It was all about learning new things around AI, sales techniques, leadership & building culture within organisations."
"These events are great for networking moments to really connect with people & help grow our businesses for the future."
