Free lunch for businesses looking to grow

Press Release   •   Nov 01, 2016 09:30 GMT

The closest thing to a free lunch is being served up at a ‘Lunch and Learn’ business growth session this month during Moray Business Week 2016.

Business Gateway will be hosting the event on Tuesday 15November in conjunction with Johnston Carmichael Accountants and The Royal Bank of Scotland. The event is aimed at existing businesses with plans to grow.

Manager of Business Gateway in Moray, Craig Robertson, said: “Business growth is not something that happens without careful planning and sound advice.

“These three organisations - who regularly work with businesses looking to grow and develop - will provide an overview of some new products, processes and services which may be useful when firms are at that critical stage of ‘scaling-up’.”

The event will highlight ways to grow through partnerships, innovation, increasing market share and supply chain opportunities. The experts will guide delegates in the preparation of a business growth plan and meeting the challenges this may bring. They will run through some vital considerations when planning and managing business growth, such as robust and achievable financial projections, and introducing vital software and tools to help maintain control of the business as well as cashflow solutions.

There will also be sessions on tax implications of growth within a business, choosing the right business structure for sustainable growth, and issues around when to re-invest in the business.

The Managing Business Growth session is free, will be at the Horizon Scotland in Forres Enterprise Park on November 15th between 12 and 2pm, and includes a free lunch.
