The next twelve months are likely to be the most challenging the industry has experienced. The CIL Programme is designed to help you meet those challenges and emerge with a stronger and more profitable business

The programme centres around four key areas, each designed to create one clear outcome for the attendees, "The ability to face the next twelve months with a clear plan to not just survive but actively grow and thrive, despite the highly volatile trading environment". 

CIL is the live version of CaffèInsights, the video series launched during lockdown to provide inspiration and guidance to 1,000’s of struggling business owners during the pandemic. 

Visitors to CIL can hear from more than 20 expert panelists and source new products and services from 25+ exhibitors and suppliers. It is the ideal chance to network with industry specialists in a safe and controlled environment, with general entry at just £80 + VAT pp.

The Programme has been created in conjunction with CaffèInsights Editor and industry consultant John Richardson and the team behind the Caffè Culture Show. Each session will be hosted by John and will include a panel of key industry experts

The updates

During lockdown we spoke to hundreds of operators about their experiences and how they were coping.  Many of these conversations turned into extensive interviews on the CaffèInsights website.  We sit down with these operators to discuss what they learned, what they’ve changed, and how they’ve shifted their businesses to be stronger and more resilient in the future.

The winners and the losers

The world within which we operate has changed forever.  Key sectors of the markets are unlikely to ever return to where they once were and others are likely to see substantial growth.  We break down how the “new normal” is affected each market sector and where are the best opportunities to thrive.  

Brand extension

One key commonality of all businesses that are now thriving is that they have looked at their businesses as a wider brand and developed areas to focus on to build value, both in short term revenue and profitability but also in longer term asset value when they come to sell the business. With tough trading conditions set to continue through to 2021, don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts from those already succeeding.
