Unit4 will share insights and experience of working with numerous mid-sized professional service firms, and how these firms managed to grow their revenues during previous economic slowdowns. Unit 4 will look at why taking the time to look inwardly at your processes and question the reasons behind them can give you the opportunity to be fully prepared when the economy picks up. They’ll also look at why companies stop spending, as there can be various reasons, and not all are linked to macro-economic factors.

Programme outline

8.30 for 9.00-10.30am (Refreshments and breakfast included)

When faced with turbulent economic times, the natural tendency is to batten down the hatches, rein in spending, and make cuts. But cost-cutting has a real impact both on morale and your firm’s ability to satisfy customers and clients.

"At Unit4, we’ve found the organizations that use slowdowns to revisit processes, make tech investments, and upskill their people are often the ones that emerge strongest and thrive in the aftermath, taking them as opportunities to improve operational resilience."

Join this exclusive breakfast roundtable where Unit4 will be exploring why an economic downturn is the perfect time to invest in your processes, technology, and people.

At the end of this session, you’ll learn:

  • How mid-sized professional service firms we’ve worked with have grown their revenue during previous economic slowdowns.
  • How taking the time to interrogate and update your processes can help you prepare for recovery.
  • Why companies stop spending – and when this strategy succeeds and fails.
