Sale Leaseback (SLB) – How businesses can benefit financially without losing control

Thriving in a New World Strategist

“This too shall pass”

If history has taught us anything, it’s that the only constant in life is change.

Over the course of the last century alone there have been a litany of challenges and numerous disasters, all of which have one thing in common – they’ve all passed.

Some months from now – it’s impossible to predict the true timeline – the current situation we face with Covid-19 will too have passed. It will have left in its wake a trail of debris and destruction which we ought not minimise,

“For the first time in my life I am a part of a group that is dedicated to supporting one another.”

With 30+ years’ CFO experience working in corporate both in the US and globally, Michael was tired of the insecurity of employment but hadn’t explored a career in consultancy. A month after his twins were born, he was made redundant in his current position.
