Are you preparing your company board for an exit?

Please join fellow company directors for a morning of networking, discussion and talks to help you prepare for a company exit and maximise the value in your business.

Our event - hosted in partnership with Bluebox Corporate Finance and In Touch Networks - will explore how company boards can systematically prepare for sale so that value is maximised and the highest possible return is achieved.

Following talks from Bluebox and Goodman Derrick's Corporate team Melissa Foux, a highly experienced Finance Director, will be sharing her experiences. Melissa has held appointments on various boards including on GU’s, during their highly successful sale process.


  • Is your Board ready to sell?

The event will take place at Goodman Derrick’s office with contributions from:
