Helping Solihull businesses to achieve their potential


No matter what stage in its lifecycle a business has reached, there is always something that the owners can learn to help them achieve their ambitions. This is the view of Solihull Professionals, a group of like-minded businesspeople who have joined forces tosupport organisations of all shapes and sizes located across the Solihull Borough. 

To signpost the experience, advice and knowledge that business owners and managers can access to help them take their companies to the next stage in their development, the group is organising a special event at Solihull’s Crown Plaza Hotel (De Limesi Suite) on February 9.

The Business Lifecycle Event will encourage delegates to take a step back and look at business from a different perspective.  In a series of interactive sessions, which are expected to be enlightening and thought-provoking, a panel of entrepreneurs and business leaders, including Ruth Chipperfield, Joe Kelly and Jane Weaver who will address the issues surrounding the three main stages of the business lifecycle.

Solihull Professionals member Bob Mountford says: “All businesses have a natural lifecycle and this event will appeal to people thinking about giving up their jobs and putting their ideas into practice and SMEs seeking growth opportunities while also being equally relevant to companies contemplating diversification and business owners who are preparing their exit strategy.

“It’s a unique opportunity to learn valuable lessons from people who have lived and breathed their businesses and are passionate about sharing their experiences and resolutions, including common pitfalls and how to avoid them.”

Solihull Professionals says businesspeople will come away from the meeting with fresh ideas, new solutions and valuable contacts who can support them as they plan for the next stage in their company’s lifecycle.

The Business Lifecycle Event starts with registration at 8.30am and concludes at 1.30pm.
