Exchange Event: Accessing & Managing Finance

27 June 2017, 08:00 - 11:00
Beamish Hall Hotel, Beamish, County Durham,
DH9 0YB.

Helping you to understand and manage your finances better as your business grows, our Exchange event is hosted by Katherine Hay-Heddle, who has spent more than 14 years advising management buy outs/ins, acquisitions, mergers, private-equity deals and venture capital transactions.

1. Managing Finance

Cash management is the pulse of any business and so we will be joined by Bill Reeves to share his experience of turning around financially stressed companies.

Bill is a business growth expert who has spent 17 years helping over 70 organisations bounce back from difficult or insolvent positions. He will be talking about what you should be looking out for in order to spot potential cash flow problems early, and how to structure and manage your finances better to grow your business faster.

2. Finding the Right Finance

With almost half of all UK SME owners having risked personal funds to meet business goals rather than raise cash elsewhere, we will be also hearing from Ian Richards, director of Northstar Ventures, a North East venture capital firm with over £100m under management.

With so many different types of finance available to growing businesses, finding the right type can be the difference to really unlock your potential or not, so Ian will help you to understand more about the many finance options that are out there to support business growth; as well as sharing inside tips on how you can get your business investor ready.

Why don’t you come along, meet with your peers, make some valuable connections and learn something new.
