Business valuation as a discipline is subject to constant evolution. The 2019 annual conference aims to keep you informed of some of the changes and some of the constants in business valuation.
As all of the issues surrounding our departure from the EU remain unresolved, the economic backcloth has a major influence on valuation. We are therefore delighted to be opening the conference with an economic update delivered by the very well-known Professor Trevor Williams, formerly Chief Economist at Lloyds Bank, and now at the University of Derby.
We will continue with plenary sessions dealing with the art of communicating numbers, the skills needed for the valuation of intangible assets, and the challenges of being an expert witness.
After lunch the conference recognises that we are a community with a broad range of interests; there will therefore be alternative streams for those interested in complex listed companies and those whose main focus is on family companies.
Group discounts of 4 + are avaliable for this conference, for further details please contact our events team on: email@example.com
