    Monday 16th March 09:15 – 14:30
    Free to SME Manufacturers

    With topics including R&D tax credits, Patent Box, green energy savings, employee benefits and succession planning, this free, one-day event for owners and board-level directors will provide insight into financial opportunities and the information you need to make sure your finance strategy protects and supports future growth.

    The Financial Expert is a high impact programme developed for established manufacturers to identify and explain the key financial issues which will underpin the future success of their business. As firms expand and scale up operations, they must develop finance from an operational function to a strategic capability with Managing Director and Board engagement. The aim of this programme is to frame strategic financial opportunities to strengthen the future prospects of the sector, to identify the critical factors for financing growth, how to protect your cash during growth and help build the financial foundations for a business with a secure future. The Financial Expert provides timely support to address this and help increase awareness and understanding of the options available to manufacturers through exclusive access to local specialists from Grant Thornton. The programme has been designed as a high impact one day workshop, respectful of the delegates’ time and conscious of the need to quickly identify issues, opportunities and solutions. There are a number of 1:1 appointments available over lunch with our Experts from the day to discuss your financial issues in confidence. If you would like to book a 1:1 slot please make a note in the COMMENTS box when you register and we will contact you to make arrangements. This event is for Owners, Managing Directors and Directors of a manufacturing business turning over more than £1 million. Please note places are limited, therefore, we can only accept 2 delegates per company.

    High Growth Centre Tour: Please indicate upon booking if you would like to take a tour of the University of Chester’s High Growth Centre facilities after lunch.
