Growth Challenges for Fast Track Companies.

Criticaleye, in association with IBM Global Process Services, hosted over 35 UK-based C-Suite Leaders at this invitation only event on Tuesday, Oct 11. The exclusive "Growth Challenges for Fast Track Companies" session opened with a networking breakfast. Four leaders then shared their experiences and advice on how companies can overcome growth constraints -- like access to capital, markets and talent -- to maintain growth trajectories. The event concluded with a highly interactive panel discussion and audience Q&A chaired by Andrew Minton a co-founder of Criticaleye.

Andrew Minton (Managing Editor) from Criticaleye opened the forum and facilitated the Q&A session by asking a question submitted online from a Criticaleye member:

"If you are looking to expand overseas, what works and what doesn't in terms of partnerships and joint ventures?"
