The Birmingham office of law firm Irwin Mitchell will host an event on 11 September highlighting what businesses and individuals need to do to prepare for a fundraising exercise, an IPO or a voluntary exit.

The early evening session which is targeted at medium to large sized organisations is being run in conjunction with Board Evaluation and will provide advice on a range of issues from financial strategy to getting the Board and senior management team right.

The first guest speaker will be Jean Pousson from Board Evaluation. Jean is a management consultant with over twenty years’ experience working with Boards, coaching executives and delivering training assignments in the fields of finance, strategy, risk and Board performance. He will look at the latest thinking in strategy and assess the link between strategy and success.

Irwin Mitchell Corporate Partner, Nick Dawson, will also be presenting. Nick specialises in corporate, M&A and private equity work. Nick has more than ten years’ experience advising on all aspects of corporate finance work including raising finance, acquisitions and disposals for corporate clients and individuals. He will highlight the focus that acquirers and funders place on due diligence and how to proactively manage and prepare a business for funding and exits.

Following the presentations, there will be a panel session allowing attendees to question representatives from the banking, corporate finance and VC markets.
