48 days to go... SPA 91st Conference - 20th June

3rd May 2016

It's time to book for the Sheet Plant Association's 91st Conference with 100% relevant content and weather permitting a river trip down the River Avon. The venue is the newly refurbished Holiday Inn on the River In Stratford.


This Conference on 20th June will be of special interest to Sales Directors and Marketing Managers tasked with managing the sales and marketing of your business.

We are delighted to confirm Stuart Lotherington from SBR Consulting will be presenting at Conference. Stuart, who travels the globe delivering his Worldclass sales training, will be introducing two vitally important topics, namely -

1. How do you design your sales process the way your customers like to buy ?
2. Is your sales methodology out of date? How do modern top producers sell ?

For those companies who don't have a full time Financial Director, or fear they do not have proper control in the area of accounting and finance, both operationally and strategically - we have a session you really shouldn't miss... Mark Nicholls, MD of Tectona Partnership Ltd. having worked closely with several companies within our sector will be running a live  Quad² session on some data showing:

•       Thoughts on the price:volume ratio (touched on last time)
•       Achieving manufacturing efficiencies
•       Review effect of buying new kit and how to fund it
•       See how the cash builds (or not)! 

Mark runs a Team of 15 commercially savvy Finance Directors with extensive experience of working within packaging and the manufacturing sector. Tectona work with owners of businesses:

  1. who have no experienced or competent Finance Director (or CFO)
  2. who are (management) time poor
  3. who have 'mission critical' financial issues
  4. and who do not fully appreciate where to focus their limited resources
