Dr. Mike Ashby from The Breakthrough Company on cultivating risk for higher returns.

About this event:
A lot of corporate governance focuses on risk management; for aspiring growth businesses, that’s a smaller part of the puzzle.

Dr. Mike Ashby has worked with hundreds of business owners and says one of the greatest obstacles to growth is most don’t consider risk, except when trying to reduce or avoid it.

The biggest returns lie in the areas of greatest uncertainty, but for the most part, we want to reduce uncertainty. Mike will show you how to be deliberate and mindful in your approach to risk, and why that’s even more important when you’ve found some success. Once people have their businesses at a certain level they tend to back off risk. That can be more dangerous than taking more on. Mike will explain how the ‘three horizon framework’ will allow you to manage your current risk while taking on other, higher return risk.

About Dr. Mike Ashby:
Mike is an experienced business mentor and author of the book ‘Breakpoints’: How To Shift Your Business To The Next Level. Formerly a strategist and partner at Ernst & Young Consulting and then COO of South Cross Healthcare, Mike is a popular and busy business adviser and speaker.
