IoD Herts & Beds: Building and Maintaining a Sustainable Business

27 Feb 2020
Luton Hoo Hotel, Luton

Wouldn’t it be nice to learn about the challenges faced by Directors looking to build a successful business, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes yourself?

Running your own company is both exciting and problematic, no matter what industry you are in. There is so much for you to do that it is difficult to be an expert in all things, all of the time. During this seminar some of the key challenges and opportunities other businesses have faced will be highlighted so that you’re better equipped to tackle them, and can concentrate on doing what you do best - running a business.

With over 20 years' experience working with some of the most innovative and fast-growing businesses in the UK and Europe, Leyton's have learned about the main obstacles to growth (People and Money) and have developed Innovation Funding and Employment Law strategies to help them achieve their goals.

Please join our interactive breakfast seminar, on the 27th February at the stunning Luton Hoo Hotel. During which, insights will be shared on how others have future-proofed their business by navigating both the challenges and opportunities that present themselves on a daily basis.
