Trade association CESA has launched a series of seminars designed to help catering equipment companies prepare for unprecedented challenges.
The ‘Building Business’ seminars are aimed at CEOs, managing directors and business owners looking to tackle industry-wide challaneges and are free to attend for CESA member companies.
The first seminar, ‘Strategies for an uncertain world,’ will cover areas such as major trends and changes the industry needs to plan for, and how to define a company’s future and takes place on October 25, 10:30 till 14:00, at the CESA office in London. The seminars will be led by Martyn Drake, one of the sector’s top consultants.
“At the end of the session, delegates should have clear understanding of their greatest potential pitfalls and opportunities,” said Drake.
“They will have a vision of what their organisation needs to become in order to thrive in the future, and a clear idea of where they need to invest time, money and resources to achieve success.”
CESA’s latest research identifies five major challenges for its members: digitisation; margin erosion; recruiting and retaining talent; the circular economy; and the potential impact of Brexit.
Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA said: “We are in a period of unprecedented uncertainty. The seminars, which will be will be highly interactive and challenging, are designed for entrepreneurial, forward-thinking businesses. By helping them to anticipate the future we can help them to thrive.”
There are six Building Business seminars in the programme, running every two months from October. Places are free but are limited to 25 people per seminar.
