Growth Through Leadership Breakfast
Thursday 12 July 2012, 07:30
KPMG Manchester, St James Square, Manchester, M2 6DS
Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) has teamed up with Insider to run a very special event. Through a panel debate with business leaders, Insider will debate the key factors that determine a successful, growing company, with leadership at the forefront of the discussion.
It will be an opportunity to hear from those at the very top of growing businesses, about how they manage expansion both logistically and with the right people. It will also be a chance to understand how leaders develop themselves and manage the changing size of an organisation.
- HEAR about winning strategies from business leaders
- LEARN how to grow your business from other fast-growing SMEs
- MEET like minded businesses and develop new relationships
- UNDERSTAND how the Lancaster University Lead Programme can help you and your business
