For senior strategists, we are proud to showcase a very popular APG seminar from the UK in Brussels. The brilliant Rachel Murphy hosts a fast paced, one day rally tour around the financials and the business issues that drive clients' thinking and decision making - critically important to understand for all senior planners.
Rachel Murphy is the founding partner of RJM Consulting. Having previously worked for both blue-chip quoted companies and private equity businesses, she established her own consulting business to provide advisory services to Board-level executives of a wide range of companies. Typical projects include company valuations for acquisitions, fund-raising advice and corporate structuring for small and mid-cap companies.
We invite Strategy Directors and Senior Planners to join us on Tuesday March 21st at the ACC offices, for this “mini-MBA in a day”. You will be teamed up with planners with a variety of backgrounds, from different agencies, and coached by Rachel Murphy.
