What initiatives are you taking to be a leader?

Friday, April 11th, 2014

The International Festival for Business is taking place in Liverpool this summer aiming to accelerate UK economic growth with an ambitious programme of global business events running throughout July 2014.

Great, say you (with weary cynicism)! However…as we have seen recently, two thirds of buyers expect a pay rise in 2014. How are you going to justify that?

What initiatives are you taking to be a leader?

Brian Farrington will be presenting at complementary IFB events, which are designed to be a useful stepping stone in your career –  make sure you save the dates.

2 July 2014

The first one is a breakfast session on 2 July (surely the bacon rolls will make it worthwhile?) in the amazing location of the Hubb Proven approaches to improving your bottom line, consisting of a two pronged input:.

i) the role of purchasing to impact on the bottom line. We will emphasise the opportunity to reduce purchase prices (without reducing quality). Not only does this improve bottom line it doesn’t need capital investment!

ii) the need for due diligence when working with suppliers, carefully explaining the unacceptable risks that some companies enter into.

A recommended implementation plan proven to improving your bottom line will also be included in your takeaway pack.

16 July 2014

The second event, on 16 July, is a full-dayer at the imposing Central Library taking a deep dive exploring Why your innovation needs your courage. We will explain the commercial, financial, procurement and legal considerations, all designed to protect your long-term interests and to take advantage of your innovation.

The input will have direct relevance to formal legal guidance, although the emphasis here will be pragmatic advice on avoiding third parties taking advantage of your innovation, without rewarding you for your efforts.

A real life case study will be included to explain the salient points.


Interested?  Please reply and I’ll make sure we save you a space and provide you with more details – yes, the events are free :)
