Macdonald Henderson was pleased to be given the opportunity to contribute to the latest quarterly instalment of the Business Journey at 29 in Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow in front of an audience of over eighty attendees.

The broad theme of the event was “20/20 Vision for Your Business”, focussing on support mechanisms for robust business planning and provide some pointers as to how businesses can successfully evolve through this next business cycle.

Speaking on the theme “Know your customer, protect your cash flow” MH’s Head of Dispute Resolution Alan McKee explored how customers and suppliers are key to a business’s success.

Who they are and how they operate is vital to ensuring that, should matters take a turn for the worse, you are perfectly placed to recover any sums due to protect the cash flow of your business. Alan explored some of the considerations and practical steps to assist businesses in being placed to do just that.

Alan’s presentation was accompanied by talks on “Ensuring Your Business is Response-able” by Jim Henderson of the Harrison James Partnership, and "How to use Apps to streamline your bookkeeping” by Simon Murrison of Murrison Wilson.

Feedback was very positive on the morning and on social media since, and soft copies of the presentations will be available on the Business Journey website shortly.

The Business Journey aims to act as a free, non-executive board to owner-managed businesses operating in the West of Scotland SME community and support businesses across all stages of development.

Whether you are an existing business with a strong track record looking to move forward, or one looking at opportunities to efficiently finance your existing operations, the breadth and depth of experience available across The Business Journey partners will prove an invaluable resource to all businesses.

The Business Journey host quarterly events comprising at 29 in Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow in which three speakers present to an audience of SME business owners and their advisors.

The presentations are generally themed and are directly relevant to the challenges which a business can be confronted with on a daily basis in the market and provide guidance with a view to assisting further where there is a need.

The principal purpose of the Business Journey is to be educational and to share knowledge but also to allow attendees and the partners to deal directly and assist with businesses where required.
