Navigating the Downturn is a presentation that looks at the reasons why business finds itself in this position, but more importantly the things that can be done now to ensure they do not become a statistic of the devastating effects of the economic recession. Specific issues covered include: • The importance of protecting cash flow • The opportunities around operational performance improvement • What finance providers are looking for in terms of ‘financial fitness’ • How the ‘best’ are positioned for recovery • A case study to bring together all the themes and actions available • Hints and tips that businesses need to consider Dil has worked within the area of Business Restructuring and Working Capital Management helping UK organisations of all sizes weather the economic downturn and also ensure survival for the upturn.
