PLATF9RM PRESENTS: The Thing Nobody Tells You About Mergers, Acquisitions & Succession Planning

There’s a lot to take care of when a business is sold, merged, or a founder leaves. Most of the advice you hear around M&As and succession is about the formal things: what happens to shares? Money? Control of the company? Who will be on the board? Who will be the new CEO? All of that stuff is the easy bit. (Kind of.) And it’s NOT what we’ll be covering at this special event.

The thing nobody tells you about M&As and succession is that there’s another oft-neglected layer to the transition process. Not the formal elements like shares and job titles, but the question of who will carry the company flame. What happens to that founder-led startup spirit after a founder leaves or two companies merge? How does all this affect the culture, creativity and energy in the company? How can a founder truly let go and be at peace whilst others lead their baby towards an uncertain future?

The event will be led by Tom Nixon, himself a founder and entrepreneur who has been involved in research led by Peter Koenig with over 500 other founders that uncovered a set of principles which seem to explain these deeper mysteries of M&As and succession. The event will be highly interactive and Tom will work with the stories, questions and current conundrums of the people who come along.

To bring the subject to life, Anthony Prior, MD of Bagelman will be joining us to tell his story of buying the business and how he not only became its new MD but truly became The Bagel Man, even though he wasn’t the original founder.

She Can. She did: Brighton Midweek Mingle

As The Midweek Mingle ventures down to the seaside, expect some She can. She did. style chit chat as we all get to hear first-hand how Anna (Influencer & Founder, The Anna Edit), Lucy (Founder, Postcards Home), Krisi (Co-Founder, Bird & Blend Tea Co.), Alice (Founder, Posh Totty Designs) and Lola (Founder, One Girl Band) took the initial plunge to launch, run and grow their successful businesses and brands; their advice for when it all goes a tad skew-whiff along the way (!); plus the all-important advice they’d offer any young woman wishing to launch her own business or excel the business they’ve already launched…

There will be G+Ts, there will be goodies and if the previous London events are anything to go by, there will also be a room full of seriously inspiring, down to earth women to meet and mingle with when you’re there!

PLATF9RM Presents: Brighton's Most Influential

In a metrics-obsessed world, our understanding of influence as a PR and marketing tool is biased towards large audiences and high engagement rates. But real online influence is about so much more.

The Good Rebels team concentrate on strong, existing, authentic and often local connections that encourage action and change the long-term behaviour of an audience. From building grassroots political campaigns to nurturing networks among food lovers, they know that real relationships deliver.

It is around these principles that PLATF9RM and Good Rebels are celebrating the influencers of Brighton. Those that cultivate an - often local - network and build real relationships with their audiences, rather than just looking for the next brand tie-in.

As well as discussing what makes for great online influence we’ll be revealing Brighton’s most effective online influencers in five categorie:

  • Food and Drink
  • Lifestyle
  • Digital
  • Campaigning and Not For Profit
  • Artists and Makers

And Good Rebels will explain how these were identified on the basis of their genuine impact and influence. Join us and celebrate the real online influencers of Brighton.

DrivenWoman Lifeworking™ Workshop – A Women’s Network in Brighton

DrivenWoman Lifeworking™ Workshop – A Women’s Network in Brighton

Dreams don’t come true because it’s difficult to stick to our own plans.

DrivenWoman is a supportive network for women who want to lead a bigger life.

Imagine if you actually achieved what you always wanted. Launched that business, wrote that novel, made that career change, lived a bigger life – how amazing would that be?

DrivenWoman is a members’ network that helps women define their own success, become accountable to their goals and make dreams happen.

We get together once a month to create positive habits and put plans into action, one small step at a time.

This is where networking meets life coaching, but this time your coaches are other women sharing their journey. The really powerful thing about going through the shared experience of LifeWorking is that it impacts directly on your positivity and belief in your own potential.

Instead of the sense of isolation you may have felt before, you will be inspired by the stories of other participants and will soon notice that the obstacles you thought were unique to you are universal to most women.

The monthly Lifeworking exercises help you expand your awareness about what you really want in life, set better and more meaningful goals and create those valuable ‘aha’ moments that set you on a faster path to success.

There aren’t any other forums like this where women support each other in such a safe and honest environment. It's a community that encourages women to believe anything is possible if you are ready to put work into it!

There will be room to follow your own curiosity and create the workshop agenda for the afternoon.

It’s for content people, creatives, digital specialists, charities, not-for-profits, artists, makers - anyone who’s interested in telling insightful stories with real impact using content strategy, data and creative.

Tickets are ‘pay-what-you-can’ and this is a not-for-profit event. The proceeds will be donated to The Clocktower Sanctuary, a charity that supports homeless young people in Brighton and Hove.

PLATF9RM Presents: What Is The Future Of Work For Generation Z?

It’s said that almost two-thirds of children in primary schools today will end up in a job that doesn’t exist yet—an era of young people dubbed Generation Z. These young people will have to be quick to adapt to the ever-elusive, ever-changing world that we call the future! Gen Z will demonstrate higher aptitude for learning and have a need for flexibility and autonomy. Much like the technology they’ve grown up with they'll also be expected to seamlessly streamline processes.

But what does that future workplace look like? Will interstellar engineering skills be A Thing? Most importantly: how is today’s society preparing this generation of young people for what these non-existent jobs will look like?

As part of the Brighton Digital Festival, PLATF9RM invite you to an evening discovering the future workplace with an impressive panel featuring, Brandon Relph, Daisy Cresswell, Lola Ray and Declan Cassidy.
