I would like to attend

Understanding the importance of an executive team, and the role they can play in taking your business to the next level, is an important step.


Whether it’s to scale or prepare for sale, a strong senior leadership team can help you accelerate growth and manage a smoother exit.


A strategic FD will help you plan for growth, mapping out shortfalls in cash flow while identifying grants and tax reliefs; an experienced COO will help you build new platforms and processes while optimising inhouse resources and suppliers; and a seasoned NED will help you find the right growth investment while advising on how to make the most of it.


Tim Hastings will be joining us as our guest for the evening. As a board level search specialist, working with both executive and non-executive talent, Tim has gained over 20 years’ experience helping high growth companies.


Over this time, Tim has developed and maintained a network of professional investors, high net worth individuals, private offices and non-executive director contacts across a broad range of sectors and industries.


Ford Hastings specialises in senior board appointments and succession planning in fast-growing, entrepreneurial business’. These firms are often privately-owned and with VC or PE backing.


This dinner will look to explore, but will not be limited to:

• The roles your board should include and why
• What to expect from each member of the board
• What role your board play in securing investment
• Finding and remunerating your senior team
• Techniques to ensure board meetings are productive
