The role of the Finance Director is evolving. Have you got the survival skills you need to help your business thrive?

In a world entangled in changes to technology and regulation, the task of preserving the financial health of your organisation continues to grow and grow. From cutting-edge research to huge, impending economic changes, it’s a jungle out there. And there are lots of topics every Finance Director (FD) and Financial Controller should be thinking about.

Today’s challenges

Research by our IT team shows a growing number of cybercriminals now prowl just beyond your internet firewall. There are colossal changes on the economic horizon too, influenced by events such as Brexit and the introduction of IFRS16. And in this new, changing world of work, more studies are proving employee engagement and business culture leads to more productivity, higher retention of people and greater profit.

These are changes that will affect your business’s investments, future planning and forecasts. Have you got the survival skills you need to survive?

Dare to be Different - Change Seminar

05/10/2017, 8:00am - 10:15am

Location: Our West Midlands office

The days of the traditional Insolvency Practitioner (IP) are over. Today's approach requires IPs to place salvation, preservation of value and a range of restructuring solutions before even thinking about the insolvency process. For businesses to have the best chance of turning things around, they need get their IP involved early, introduce them to the whole business cycle and stay positive. It’s not over until the fat lady sings.

Are your clients prepared for change?

PKF Cooper Parry's Restructuring Advisory team would like to invite you to a breakfast ‘Change’ seminar on
5 October 2017 from 8.00am - 10.15am at our new West Midlands office (One Central Boulevard, Blythe Valley Park, Solihull, West Midlands, B90 8BG). 

The days of a traditional insolvency practitioner "sizing up the coffin", have long gone. Today's approach requires IPs to place salvation, preservation of enterprise value, and a comprehensive range of turnaround and restructuring solutions first and foremost, not just at the eleventh hour, but across the whole business lifecycle.

This seminar provides an insight into why being different is often a critical success factor in helping your clients achieve growth in an uncertain business environment. Success is not just about what your clients do but more often about why they do it.

You will hear:

  • Henrietta Brealey from the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce provide an update on local economic indicators and trends;
  • Tyrone Courtman will address the importance of being different and how PKF Cooper Parry's different approach is having a positive impact in transforming the business of its clients;
  • Fraser Dick from Perfection Alloys, a highly respected motor service business, will reflect on how losing sight of business fundamentals very nearly brought Perfections' business to an end and how PKF Cooper Parry brought them back from the brink of financial disaster.

We do hope you are able to join us and enjoy some thought provoking insight into the changing world of Restructuring, combined with the opportunity to network with likeminded professionals.
