Jenny Shutt, associate director, Grant Thornton UK
Jenny specialises in helping businesses to identify and deliver a transformational cash release from working capital. She has experience of all major functions within a client’s company – not just finance – to build support for change initiatives, and to define and target optimal working capital levels. The result can often equate to at least 5% of turnover, often with more than 50% of the benefits delivered within 12 months. In this informative session Jenny will share real life examples of how improving working capital can result in better business performance, and how the challenges can differ depending on the size of a company. She will highlight some top tips you can take back to your own business, as well as the warning signs you need to look out for. This session is a must for anyone who cares about the financial well-being of their business.
