Tech Adoption

One key lesson of the pandemic was that companies that were better prepared digitally continued to trade profitably and win new business. But new tech does not always come cheap and can be difficult to implement without the right skills and training, particularly for smaller businesses. Social media marketing guru Steven Bartlett and the panel will discuss ways to accelerate digitization, how to identify the right tech and sell it in to staff, plus social media engagement and e-commerce strategy.

Financial Wellness

The pandemic has resulted in the equivalent of £11,799 in lost revenue for every business in the UK. This has caused widespread cash flow problems, rising loan applications, job losses, budget cuts and the fear of reduced turnover for years to come. The mental toll for owners is harder to quantify, but no less damaging. Dominic Cools-Lartigue and the panel will share their financial expertise around cash flow management, lending, growth strategies, long-term financial planning and, importantly, how they deal with stress and pressure.
