The GO2 People Story – Rapid Growth and ASX Listing
Unique Captain’s Table topic with guest speaker Billy Ferreira, MD, The GO2 People.
Book here – Wednesday 24 March 12 – 1.15pm AEDST – via Zoom with recording and presentation included.
Growth, succession and exit planning are critical ingredients of business success for recruitment company owners.
There is so much we can learn from companies that have explored the options of rapidly scaling their business to expand nationally, improve performance and build long term enterprise value.
The GO2 People (ASX:GO2) listed on the ASX in 2017 after rapid growth from startup in 2011. GO2 executed its business plan with a strong focus on high quality, solution based service delivery. As a result, their brand and reputation grew quickly. Having achieved key milestones, GO2 has opened offices in WA, QLD and NSW with a focus on temporary and permanent staffing for the infrastructure, logistics, waste, mining and construction industries and now expansion into national executive recruitment following the recent acquisition of Hunter Executive.
This special Captain’s Table Session is suitable for owners and managers keen to hear about:
– Rapid growth – what works and what doesn’t
– How to keep staff engaged and excited by the growth plan
– Expansion options – organic growth, private capital raising or ASX listing
– Lessons learned from ASX listing
– Further expansion strategies via new business development
– Opportunity to build company value through strategic acquisitions
– Considerations for owners looking to be acquired for exit and succession
