I will be hosting 2 events for the Chartered Institute of Management Accounts (CIMA) in the North West Midlands area in the next few weeks: -
Tuesday 21st September - 6.30pm
Private Equity at the Best Western Hotel, Festival Park, Stoke-on-Trent
Paul Harper of Barclays Private Equity (and Midlands Young Dealmaker of the Year 2008 & 2009) will be giving a presentation on what Private Equity is, the conditions in which it makes an investment, the details of how a deal is made up and the potential returns on offer to investees (i.e. the management team). He will also be discussing the effect that the recession has had on Private Equity and what the environment will look like to them in the forthcoming recovery.
Tuesday 19th October - 6.30pm
"Faff" at the Roman Way Hotel, Cannock
Author, presenter and business man, Mike Pagan, will deliver his presentation, "Faff", based on his book of the same name which was published earlier in 2010. He will highlight the many ways we have of "Faffing About" and doing anything other than the things that we really should be focussing on. He will also highlight a tool kit and templates to assist you to keep focused on the things that really matter if you are going to succeed in your endeavours.
Both of the events are free to attend but require an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you will be coming (in order to assist with housekeeping matters such as room layout, handouts and refreshments etc).
I look forward to seeing you at one or both of these events.
