Finding your North Star - the hgkc podcast series

where we talk to prominent business people about their experiences and challenges of innovation.

We believe that innovation is the lifeblood of business, and ideas the pump that keeps it flowing. In this series of interviews with business leaders from all sectors, we explore with them their successes and challenges with innovation and change. We spent more than 18 months researching innovation with leaders of established and start-up businesses, and published a white paper called Finding your North Star. We’re really excited now to offer this podcast series, which both extends our research and brings new insights.

Upcoming EventBuying or selling a business? There are challenges…

Date: 17 Oct 2019 08:30

Are you considering, planning or implementing a growth through acquisition strategy? The real advantage of acquisition is the pace at which growth can be achieved. Add to that other almost instant benefits that make that growth sustainable – financing, economies of scale, extended market penetration, catching competitors off guard – and it can look like a very attractive option.

Or are you thinking that one day you might want to sell? You might see your business as your pension; or the stepping stone to the next stage of your life.

Whichever side of the transaction you are on, there are challenges, not the least of which is that work on the deal and then the integration needs to go on even as the current activity continues. This places considerable stress on individuals, businesses and functions, and many deals fail to deliver the expected benefits because cultures clash or things were overlooked during commercial and legal due diligence. 

Join us on the 17th October to explore and discuss the challenges and to learn from the experiences of people who have been through this before.

hgkc is the consultancy for business owners and Directors who want to grow through innovation

We help business owners and Directors become innovation-led to achieve exceptional performance for their business and their people.

Contact hgkc

We work with clients who…

  • are only innovative when your customers ask you to be
  • concerned you can’t see what your R&D team is achieving
  • are kept awake at night by fear of failure and risks to your business
  • are focused so much on today that plans for tomorrow are overwhelmed
  • are not confident enough to invite partners into your business (and definitely not competitors)

hgkc have helped us invent a whole new way to manage and communicate about our innovation projects – BAU, “the pond”, Blue-sky, horizons, Game Plans and RACI techniques have enabled us to focus on the key projects and direction for our innovation at TasteTech.
