The Big Audit Agenda

For the last of our Specialist Seminars of 2021, we think that now would be a good time to focus and plan for the future.

To do this, we must take stock of where we are now and identify the areas of our businesses that we want to improve, grow, and work on for the future health of our brands!

With this in mind, we will be asking each of our delegates to bring a current challenge in their business to the seminar. One will be selected and the afternoon will be spent in zoom breakout room “Mini Peer boards” facilitating by The Alternative Board and the bfa, these boards will utilise the power of collaboration and show how it can provide insights, ideas,  and most importantly solutions to these challenges!
