2016 will see an exciting new format for Speaker Boutique with the first in the series on “Protecting your business”.
Join us to hear three entrepreneurs openly share their stories on the steps they have taken to protect their business. They will discuss different areas, having experienced and survived a specific threat, sharing the steps they have taken to mitigate future risks.
Our speakers will be sharing how they have experience some of the following and how they have mitigated risk for the future:
Cybercrime – what to be aware of and procedures to mitigate, internal threats – investor/shareholder relations that breakdown, and doing business internationally.
This event is for anyone conscious of mitigating risk within their business. Join us to hear our experienced Supper Club members share their own experiences, warts and all.
