Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Business Owners Forum this week with Stuart Spicer, Geoff Griggs and myself on the panel. Feedback has been great. There was plenty of quality discussion around shareholder current accounts – and how to make sure they are tax efficient, protected from creditors – and equitable between shareholders.
The Business Owners Forum is a means for business owners to get together for quality discussion around a relevant topic with a panel knowledgeable on the subject. Format is casual over pizza, beer and wine. The supporters are ElevateCA Limited, The Bottom Line Expense Reduction, BNZ, Webb Ross and The ICEHOUSE – and the ethos of the supporters is to keep the forum free from sales.
Business Owners Forums are held monthly – and alternate between Auckland and Whangarei.
The September Business Owners Forum will be held at The ICEHOUSE in the Textile Centre, Parnell, Auckland on 17 September from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. The topic will be “Cashflow”, and the panel of three will consist of Michael Masterson, a senior BNZ banker and myself.
Entry is limited to business owners, and is by invitation. There is no charge.
The October Business Owners Forum will be back to Whangarei in the ElevateCA Limited offices on 15 October from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. The topic will be current employment issues – and an expert panel will be assembled for the session.
The forum is tailored to owners of businesses turning over $1m and upward – so if you fall into that categoty and would like to be included on the invite list, contact me. In a nutshell, the Business Owners Forum is all about quality discussion with no sales.
Oh, and enjoying a beer or wine and pizza with peers.
