Business turnaround – size does not matter


Businesses come in all sizes. As advisors, most of your client base in the small-to-medium business category, as does the Worrells portfolio of business insolvencies. However, sometimes an appointment comes along that seemingly breaks the mould, but really, its pieces reveals the same framework and dynamic of many vulnerable small-to-medium businesses.

Join us to hear about how the voluntary administration process was successful in turning around the Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics business in a remarkable three-month period. We’ll share which components of this business needed to be restructured and why, while giving examples of other businesses that have the same obstacles and therefore opportunities to navigate out of insolvency challenges.
Attendees will gain the insight needed to see a potential problem and the knowledge of how to respond as advisors—regardless of its scale. In matters of insolvency, size truly does not matter.
