“What are the biggest legal pitfalls an SME can face, and how can they be managed or avoided” 

As an SME, or entrepreneur we are often watching our budgets and cash flow very closely. To the point where we are clearly avoiding unnecessary spend, and reducing where ever possible necessary spend. This creates a blind spot for all us, where key topics can fall into the gap and be missed. Legal issues and requirements are one of these, as they tend to be a very silent need until something really goes wrong.
However, setting this up properly from the beginning can have massive positive impacts on your business, and can be done in a cost effect or as needs basis. Unfortunately, knowing where to start, and what to target first, holds many business owners back, as they quickly become overwhelmed by the sheer choice, cost, and range of options. So even though all business owners know the value of good legal advice and support, it often gets left until it is absolutely necessary to engage someone or spend in this area. Leading to risk opening up, and potential complications that can become a crisis overnight.

In this meeting David Holloway will look at the just what can be done to help business owners succeed, and how you can tailor your knowledge to help you avoid some of the pitfalls. David is a highly qualified executive with over twenty years of international experience. Holding an MBA, an MFA, and Bachelor’s degrees in Law and Economics. He is also holds a Master Coaching Certificate and is a solicitor/attorney admitted to practice in three jurisdictions. He has a strong focus on Corporate Advisory work and Human Capital work.

Now more than ever it is crucial to allow a business to obtain all possible advantages, and understanding some keys tips to navigate the ever complex legal system is part of that. Finding the time and money to get this right is something all business owners regularly debate, and often put off to another day. Then regret! Join us to be given a great range of tips and ideas to effectively think about how to secure the legal aspects of your business.

After the presentation we will have time for Q&A into the key needs for your business and what can be achieved, to ensure you can take away as much as possible to support your business. This will be highly interactive, and I urge you to consider the key questions you would like to ask in advance and either send them to me for addition, or be prepared to place them on the chat function during the talk, so they can be easily answered during or at the end of the presentation.

I look forward to seeing you and hope that you join prepared to share your experience with your fellow members.  We expect that at the end of the session, you will take away some new insights and have some ideas and actions to take back into your business. If you have any questions or thoughts about how we can make this session even more impactful, please feel free to contact me.
