Interested in Ambitious Growth?

This intimate Focus Dinner with entrepreneur Frances Rus will delve into the topic of adopting and implementing a substantial acquisition and growth strategy.  As CEO of Duncan & Todd, Frances will provide an insight into why acquisition is very much on the cards for their business following a £15m investment from the Scottish office of LDC, the mid-market private equity investor.  You will hear all about the company's recent acquisitions, understand their strategy for the future and speak to an expert in the field of business growth all while enjoying a wonderful dinner in an intimate setting where you can discuss your own business ambitions amongst your group of like-minded peers. 

Frances will discuss her entrepreneurial journey. From starting in a small family run business, to undergoing a MBO where she became the majority shareholder for 7 years. She will also reflect on how she went through two rounds of different types of investment and will share her experiences with you.
