A Debate on Growth:  How will you Grow your Company in this Economy?

This debate will tackle the pros and cons of organic versus acquisition growth.

·        What is your appetite for risk?

·        Are you looking for fast growth and if so, which way can you grow faster?

·        What are the opportunities and constraints to consider for your business?

·        What are some of the hurdles to avoid on either track?

From our Annual CEO Survey in 2011, we learned that the #1 Aspiration for CEOs was Sales Growth. We are responding to that particular question in two ways:

1)    Organic Growth – survey says: 

Constraint 1:  Sales department is not in place

Constraint 2:  Business infrastructure not in place

2)    Growth via Acquisition – survey says:

Constraint 1:  Access to capital markets (Prior NSS CEO Workshop)

Constraint 2:  How to recognize an opportunity

In this debate we will explore how CEOs and experts view the two venues of growth and how to identify and recognize opportunities and synergies. This is also an exploration of how much risk the CEOs feel comfortable with.  This will be a fun and educational, interactive debate where your participation is wanted.
