As business owners and leaders, it is time to reflect on 2019 and focus what success and opportunities will look like in 2020.

Whether you like it or not and if the UK leaves with or without a deal, 2020 will see one of the toughest times for the UK economy with Brexit. It is not an exaggeration to say that only the businesses who are prepared and have a plan will survive. This also includes planning for such changes in legislation such as IR35 in April.

This is where the next Recruit. Retain. Grow will help you prepare and plan.

On Tuesday 21st January, join GROW at one of the most famous and successful teams in Formula 1, as they are hosted by Williams F1 at their Conference Centre next to the F1 factory in Grove, Oxford.

On the face of it, Williams is a great example of a business with history and heritage which is currently not performing on track in the 2019 season. However, scratch beneath the surface and Williams has hugely diversified over the past few years using the technology learnt in Formula 1 and applied to other industries and race series such as Formula E. It is a prime example of a business which has looked beyond the obvious in order to create success.

Another famous name will be joining regular speakers Nick and David from the world of retail, as our event sponsors Ryman Business return. This time with a very interesting case study looking at when entrepreneur Theo Paphitis purchased Ryman Stationary when the business faced bankruptcy and how they have successfully turned it around into the business we see today.

ARM Recruitment are also joining to discuss and help you prepare for the upcoming IR35 legislation, which will see businesses with contract and self-employed workers affected.

If that wasn’t enough, host Williams will then take you on a tour of their heritage collection and museum, allowing you to get up close to some of the most iconic cars in Formula 1’s history.
