IoD Webinar: Growing pains? How to shield your business from risk as you scale

28 Jan 2020
Institute of Directors, London
Growing a business in an era of constant change can be both challenging and risky. The changes your business is undertaking will undoubtedly present opportunities, however with reward comes risk! Unfortunately, scaling is a double edged-sword and these two factors are undeniably linked. Ultimately, when it comes to protecting your growing business, its difficult to know what you need to do or how to audit the cover you might already have in place. In this webinar we’ll be joined by Alex Wheal, Commercial Client Manager at Hiscox, who works with both start-ups & SME owners at business accelerators and co-working sites across the UK, helping to empower them by auditing their business risks and enabling them to understand how appropriate coverage can help to mitigate against potential pitfalls. Alex Mitchell, who leads the IoD’s founder community, will be joining the session to share his tips on how to minimise risk, and chairing the session will be Anne Duncan, IoD France committee member and VP of the International Women’s Forum. When you’ve invested so much in building a business, keeping it secure and thriving is a priority! In this session we’ll – • Discuss how to shield your business from risk as you scale • Help you to identify what level coverage is appropriate for your business • Explore other measures you can take to minimise risk of failure • Answer your questions in an extensive Q&A session This webinar is open to all IoD members and their networks, so feel free to share the registration page with your friends and colleagues. A recording of the webinar will be made available to all registrants after the broadcast, so please do register even if you are unable to listen live.
