EDITION ONE: THE POWER AND POTENTIAL OF PARTNERSHIPS
Introduction: Partnerships in any endeavor is a strategic imperative and this is no different in business. The history of the world of business has many examples of partnerships and the roles they have played in achieving mutual goals and objectives that may otherwise would not have been realized. However, not all business partnerships have been successful nor delivered the desired outcomes.
There is broad consensus on the value of partnerships and many young executives appreciate the fact that entering into partnerships is an important lever for creating and sustaining a successful business. The need is to start the conversation on ‘why I need partnerships’ right through to ‘how to identify and secure the right partnerships.’
The Breakfast Dialogue: Business environments are usually fluid and complex, and the creation of intricate value chains require a clear understanding of how partnerships work. Though many young executives are eager to enter into partnerships, there are some questions on their minds.
• When is the best time to enter into partnerships
• What pitfalls should one look for in partnerships
• Who are the best partners
• What are the legal and business implications in the medium to long term
• How to tell if the partnership will be successful
The Ishmael Yamson & Associates Young Executive Business Breakfast Meeting will have a dialogue to create a better and deeper understanding of the roles of Partnerships and how their power and potential can be released to drive optimum value creation.
The Expected Outcomes: The breakfast meeting is designed to help the participating young executives to:
• Understand better the roles and potentials of Partnerships;
• Appreciating the “Dos and Don’ts” of Partnerships
• Share experiences on Partnerships and learn from the experiences of others;
• Develop personal roadmaps for setting up and securing the appropriate Partnerships
• Establish a network with other young executives for further dialogue on common business issues
