  • Maximising cashflow
  • Strategic debt
  • Asset Planning
  • Increasing capacity to manage growth
  • Debt Ledgers
  • Terms of Trade
  • HR planning
  • Preventing staff fraud

  • Grooming your business for sale
  • Investing in solar energy
  • Electric Car Fleets

But our experts know it all - if you have a different need that fits within this months topic, just let us know.

This is a free event and there are no fishhooks or obligations. Once you have told us what your needs are we will match you with the appropriate expert (or experts) and arrange a time for you to meet them.



You must be the owner of a North Canterbury based business, and that must be the business you discuss.

You can attend this course in person, or via the internet. This is a good option if you live a long distance from Kaiapoi. Our video conferencing system is simple to use and does not require setting up any online accounts.

This opportunity is limited to 8 attendees, with priority given to business owners who have not attended previous 'Talk with the Experts' sessions.
