The idea of Apex is to provide valuable information and collaborative events for business leaders in fast growth and mid-size companies.
We have a series of events planned in 2017 and you can view the 2017 schedule here.
Our first event of 2017 is titled Scaling Up, or selling Out.
'Scaling up, or Selling out' will look at how we view, manage and enjoy our businesses. This is not a seminar on buying, investing or selling, it is about how business and personal drive together with lifestyle objectives interact and impact over time, using real life examples.
There are 7 Key stages in the business life cycle. Understanding these and aligning them with the owners’ personal ambitions is critical to meeting their goals, be the entities private companies, family businesses or third-party funded companies. In short, how we can be happy and successful in our business, maintaining motivation to be able to meet our financial, intellectual and other personal needs.
This event looks as what sits behind the decision on whether to scale up, maintain the status quo or sell out. We will cover:
- 7 stages of the business life cycle
- How personal and business energy is reflected in business success
- The best timing to sow, tend or reap rewards
- How to let go of the day-to-day running of a business
- The issues in passing on a business, be that to the next generation, management or trade
Wherever you are at in your personal or business life cycle, this seminar will be for you.

The course also provides invaluable advice on integrating the legal team into a business and “selling” its value to your internal client.

Have You Managed Your Risk?
Early prosecutions under the Bribery Act may not have been as blockbuster as many had expected with a couple of low grade offences, but the SFO now has a major prosecution completed and has announced a pipeline of cases and access to blockbuster funding.
With the SFO swinging into action it's important that all companies have effective systems in place to minimise corruption risks.
With a mix of presentation, interactive discussion and video, this course will show you how to establish an effective anti-bribery compliance programme.
