Blurred lines: How to nurture a good bank + business relationship

It is not uncommon for misunderstandings to arise between a business and its bank. A good open relationship is now more important than ever as the banking sector becomes more and more competitive and regrettably less transparent. Even banks are not immune to tighter lending parameters! At this event, BDO’s Peter Winterflood and Darren Stacey will offer you ways to improve and have more productive conversations with your bank - before a gap arises in the relationship.


This event will also update SME’s on the current finance environment, and explain how:

  • Access to finance is getting tougher to secure from mainstream banks
  • Banks are under pressure from their regulator and what this means for you
  • Tighter terms and conditions are impacting even the lowest risk businesses
  • Banks are wary of customers wanting to refinance from another bank
  • Businesses can get on top of any upcoming repayment dates to allow time to deal with any issues
  • Alternative forms of finance are available and how to look into this option.
