Our 4 informative speakers are:


Jonathan Whitbread - Partner, Harrison Clark & Rickerbys.
Finance Generator allows business leaders the ability to outsource fund raising, whilst remaining in control of the process. HCR work with investors and banks, as well as a range of alternative funders and grant funders, linking corporates and money. HCR can assist you to  find the finance solution that you need, manage the legal and credit processes and support the transaction until the money is in your bank. HCR are involved at every stage of growth, and because they  are not tied to any funders, customers get the best deal for their business.

Duncan Sutcliffe - Director, Sutcliffe & Co.
Trying to insure a growing business can be confusing and overwhelming, particularly as the potential risks grow too. It doesn’t have to be. Duncan will help you understand what insurance your business, and you, may need and de-mystify the art of risk management.
