hgkc Exit Planning - "it's never too late"

What is an exit strategy?

A business exit strategy is when a business owner is preparing to exit from his or her own company. It helps them ensure that their business is where it needs to be to maximise for the future. You will be able to plan for the future of your company, understand your bottom line, and help make sure that you have a successful and efficient exit.

Why do you need an exit plan?

Through planning and preparation, you can make sure that you are leaving your business in capable hands, allowing you to exit peacefully without worrying about the state of your company.

hgkc Innovation - something different that creates value

What is innovation?

Something different that creates value, the lifeblood of every organisation. Innovation will help you to keep up with your competitors, adopt new technologies to drive change in your market, get ahead of potential disruptions to your business, or drive industry disruption.

Why should you innovate?

Innovation is positive, it keeps you moving forward, it leads to growth.  We help our clients build an innovation strategy that helps them grow their business.

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 been with us for more than 5 years, available at the end of a phone to talk to when the issues and challenges of growing a company in a complex global market seem overwhelming. Their clarity of thought and capacity to challenge the status quo mean that nothing is ever quite as bad as it might first appear. Investing in working with the team at hgkc has been a game changer

BE 2.0 - Jim Collins & Bill Lazier

Date: 01 Dec 2021 16:00

Jim Collins decided to create a re-release of Beyond Entrepreneurship - the leadership staple he and Bill Lazier published nearly 30 years ago - for three reasons. Firstly, he is still fiercely passionate about entrepreneurs and the leaders of small businesses. Like hgkc, these are the people he most wants to reach. Secondly, he has not stood still, has gleaned decades of new research about people decisions, leadership, vision, strategy - and luck! And thirdly, BE 2.0 honours the person he describes as the greatest mentor in his life, Bill Lazier, who passed away in 2004.

Reed Hastings, co-founder of Netflix, says that Beyond Entrepreneurship '...transformed my leadership style more than any other book or person.' 

Join us at The Book Club to discover what made this book the enduring classic that it has become, and to explore 'The Map' - the framework that Collins provides for building a company that delivers superior results, makes a distinctive impact, and achieves enduring success. that pulls together.

In a radical departure from previous Book Clubs, this time registration is free via our LinkedIn Event listing, but you have to buy the book - and read it - before you can come! Oh - and you should bring your own tea and cake too....
