In this session, we will take time out to discuss the importance of planning for the future of your business, and what you need to be thinking about.

Bridge St.

You will learn the keys to succession planning, along with the five steps of succession planning. We will also discuss what goes into a contingency plan, the merits of apprenticeship and how to manage the loss of control.
