Businesses of all sizes can see their growth flatten, making it difficult to grow. Seeking alternative approaches may be a necessary step to grow beyond this stage, and in certain circumstances merger or acquisition can be the best and most cost-effective way of achieving future expansion (and growth) for the business.

Working in partnership with Stevens & Bolton, Smith & Williamson is delighted to invite you to ‘Grow Quicker – Transact to scale’, the first in a series of three Scaling Up for Success seminars this year.
