The 360° Club meets quarterly to bring together senior decision makers to discuss and debate initiatives that must be driven to ensure fast-growth and a competitive edge. We meet in private locations for an exclusive invitation-only networking and discussion evening.
International Expansion. It remains one of the greatest opportunities for SMEs and PWC states 79% of CEOs are making organic growth their top priority in 2018. Yet it is also one of the most challenging, surrounded by constant risk. It’s also one of the topics that inspires the greatest debate throughout our members at the 360° Club.
However, when even giants such as Starbucks, eBay and Tesco, equipped with resources and time, have experienced failure in expanding across Australia, China and the US, how can SMEs be expected to get it right?
In fact, as an SME you have the upper hand. Through flexibility, innovation, speed and agility you can become industry disruptors and overtake top performers. As companies such as Pure Gym and Revolut are proving by growing at an alarming rate. With Pure Gym turning over £160 million, and Revolut $90 million to date both expanding into US, Canada, and Hong Kong.
De-risking expansion is challenging and requires careful planning, allocating right resources, having cultural understanding and being realistic about your expansion expectations. It is also the staging post to the next level for your business and one that should never be taken lightly.
That’s why learning from other companies’ mistakes and ensuring your strategic decisions are as informed as possible is crucial to succeeding in 2018.
