INSIGHT Breakfast Series

Fuelling for Growth:
The Art, The Science And The Inevitable War Stories

February 2019

Our February INSIGHT Breakfast was all about Fuelling for Growth: The Art, the Science and the inevitable War Stories.

The discussion was hosted by fdu’s CEO Adam Bloch and our guest speaker was Paul Burwood, a leading senior cross industry Commercial Director, with expertise in go-to-market sales and marketing strategy, as well as operational resource structuring. Paul led the conversation discussing his experiences of supporting leaders in their drive for growth during organic scale-up, post-acquisition cycles or in growth turnaround situations. As they all related to companies, people, products and services, Paul’s experiences made for engaging listening.

All discussions were held under Chatham House rules.

“I wanted to thank you for inviting me to the session this morning, I enjoyed the topic very much. I am sure everyone was so engrossed that we could have easily carried on for another hour or so.”
