Our Doing the Deal event will get to the heart of the thinking, the process and the pain-points involved in buying and selling businesses.

We will hear first-hand from acquisitive entrepreneurs and learn how they uncover and assess the right opportunities to pursue.

And we will learn from those have who sold their businesses. For many, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event and we will share those experiences.

Around the table, we will also have the professionals whose job it is to facilitate the deals and realise the dreams and ambitions of their clients – whether buying or selling.

Their job will be to introduce the key aspects to dealmaking, including guidance on the money, investment and the legals – and what works in the negotiating arena.

With all our guests, we’ll be seeking strategic insight and tactical acumen: expertise and experience that can inspire our viewers and readers.

Panel One: the businesses

In our first panel discussion, we will hear from the entrepreneurs who have successfully bought and sold businesses.

We’ll be seeking the insight of their first-hand experiences. We want to know what is needed to successfully ‘Do the Deal’ – the pitfalls they faced and how to avoid them - and the valuable advice they believe will benefit others looking to go down the same route.

Panel Two: the professionals

In our second panel, we bring together the professionals who can smooth the waters towards a successful transaction.

Again, we will tap into their knowledge and experience, get their expert advice and explore just what is needed to get the right deal ‘over the line’.

Speakers confirmed so far:

Mark Gibbons, senior access to finance specialist at Access 2 Finance Tim Mills, partner at Azets

Benjamin Dredge, managing partner at
