BFM is pleased to welcome Forbes Burton, specialists in Business Rescue, Recovery, and Growth to talk about building business resilience.




The global effects of Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine have demonstrated the need to make sure your business has the strength to survive during uncertain times.

Successfully weathering economic storms requires business owners to have a well-defined plan for making your business as resilient as possible as this can be the difference between survival or failure.

Drawing on their years of experience in Business Rescue & Recovery, Rick and Ben will talk you through the key things you need to know to get your business on a sound footing.


What you’ll learn from this session:

Why it is critical that you know your figures
How to make sure poor cash flow doesn’t impact your business
Why you should minimise borrowing whenever possible
Why you shouldn’t fall into the trap of using HMRC as a bank (most do!)
How to tell if your company is in trouble and needs help (and what your options are)
