“Attracting investment and achieving an exit”

The next event will focus on preparing a business for investment, the

influence a successful outcome. We will be joined by Robert Sheffrin

services and how they go about preparing a business for investment,
what FD’s should be doing to get a business ready and what they look
for as investors. Robert is a Chartered Accountant who has focused

BGF work with businesses and management teams post investment
towards a successful exit. Neil is a Chartered Accountant and is
