Business leader offers advice on surviving in a dowturn

Post Time:Apr 16,2009Classify:Company NewsView:306

Business people in South Yorkshire can find out about the strategies a company in the region is adopting to ensure it not only survives the current economic conditions, but actually grows.

Business Link is hosting the event, called Survive and Thrive in Rotherham this month with Ian Davy MD at Rotherham-based glazing specialist Solaglas Windowcare. The free event takes place at the Holiday Inn, Rotherham on April 22 (6.30-8.30pm).

Ian Davy will give a genuine and down-to-earth account of how he built up his company from scratch. The Hellaby-based company was sold in 2002 to French giant Saint-Gobain and when the new company was formed, he was asked to remain as MD. Since then, Solaglas Windowcare’s turnover has grown, doubling to £27m in the past four years. Since 2005, turnover has increased by almost 30%.

The business provides repair, replacement and refurbishment for the country’s largest insurers and intermediaries and increasingly is serving retailers, public sector agencies, facility management companies and hotels.

Mr Davy will talk about the challenges the company has faced over the last year and how they have managed to overcome them.

The event also features a presentation from Sharan Gohel, QED, about talent management and managing change in the current economic climate.

There will also be the opportunity to network with delegates, speakers as well as experienced business advisers who will be on hand to explain the free business support services available through Business Link Yorkshire.
