The balancing act of people and profit following change

Tuesday, 18 August 2020

10:00 to 11:00

Has your business been focusing and prioritising profit over people since COVID 19?  Business owners and Finance Directors across the region agree that leading though crisis and ensuring the survival of an organisation has meant that 'cash has been King,...Queen and Jack!'. Whilst we all agree that people and profit are vital ingredients of a successful business, as we move forward, it's important to regroup and check the balance - could things be better? As you navigate your way through Change, Redundancy and Restructure - what sort of benefits could your organisation gain with Finance and HR priorities mutually aligned?

We would like to invite you to a virtual round table event that will help give insight and guidance on successfully partnering Finance and HR to achieve effective business change following redundancies and restructuring.  We have two experts chairing the event who have impressive and extensive experience managing these kinds of projects and implementing change.  

Allan Caven ACMA - Finance Director – Allan is a turnaround and distress specialist, with a real focus on profit and building a plan to achieve it. He is an experienced leader with a proven track record in both PLC and SME environments across multiple industries including Energy, Waste, Retail, Financial Services, Recruitment, and Manufacturing. Allan has extensive experience across business partnering, business growth, stakeholder management, business re-structuring, mergers & acquisitions, exit route planning, turnarounds, raising finance and private equity.

Gavin Peace FCIPD - HR Director – Gavin has several years’ experience overseeing redundancy, restructuring, change and transformation projects. He has industry experience across Financial services, hospitality and Retail. Gavin has previously led a 250 employee TUPE transfer and 450 headcount redundancy consultations simultaneously with zero litigation. He’s also managed redundancy projects both small and large scale up to 1,500 heads. 
Gavin has extensive experience across business and team consolidation, team restructures, culture change, system implementation, large and small scale recruitment projects and people management.

The format of the event is an invitation only 'virtual round table' and will be made up of a small selected group of Business Leaders coming together for an open (confidential!) discussion.  The group size is designed to allow everyone the opportunity to contribute, share issues and ideas and direct the discussion to the areas most relevant to yourself and your organisation.  The aim is to leave with key takeaways from the experienced professionals and to give you clarity regarding next steps.  We have put together the event as a value added service to our clients and it is free of charge to attend.

Date - Tuesday 18th August 2020.  10am-11am via Zoom.
