FINAL CALL: Invitation to business leaders: Seminar series
Update: We have five (5) places left for the October seminar. Book now to avoid disappointment.
The catering industry, and we as its suppliers, are facing a period of unprecedented uncertainty. Mitchells & Butlers Chair, BoB Ivell, summed it up at the ALMR Spring Conference, in the phrase: “I’ve never seen the kind of headwinds that are currently being thrown at us as an industry”.
In CESA’s latest research we identified five major challenges for our members over the coming years, from digitisation, margin erosion, recruiting and retaining talent; to the circular economy and the potential impact of Brexit. These, along with other global shifts, have the potential to transform our market. Entrepreneurial, forward-thinking businesses, who can anticipate that future will thrive. Others will struggle to survive, and we’re already seeing that happen.
CESA is committed to helping our members thrive. To that end, we have partnered with Martyn Drake, one of the sector’s top consultants, who has worked with some our most successful and entrepreneurial members, and led the CESA Council through our own strategy process last year. Martyn will host a series of essential CEO seminars, to help our members prepare for and take full advantage of the changes we face. The seminars are free to attend for CEOs, MDs and owners of full CESA member organisations, and will be held at the CESA Offices, Albert Embankment, London. They will be highly interactive and challenging, with a maximum of twenty-five attendees per session.
The full schedule of seminars is below along with a more detailed outline of the October session. We expect them to fill very quickly, so if you would like to attend, please email me as early as possible to ensure your seat, specifying the seminars you would like to join.
