Every year we inform and entertain hundreds of MDs, FDs and business owners at our range of expert events. You can attend for free - without obligation - and you don’t need to be an existing client!
A Lunch with Ann Coffey
The current political landscape is nothing short of chaotic and this chaos was further echoed when we saw MP’s leaving their parties to set up “The Independent Group”. Dissatisfaction was rife and those who left were in search of a new, stronger form of leadership they didn’t feel they were getting from current party leaders.

The Benefits of Employee Benefits
Employee benefits are a great way for businesses to attract and retain employees, as well as improve retention and enhance staff wellbeing. As the saying goes - "to win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workplace." An increasing number of businesses are now offering benefits far beyond just a workplace pension in a bid to differentiate themselves from other employers and retain the best talent.

MBO: Friend Or Foe?
Planning a business exit is far from simple and it is important to know which exit route will work best for you. Finding the right buyer can be a challenge but sometimes, what you’re looking for can be right in front of you.
