AMTIL has been working on its program of events for the coming year, and now we have some details for your diary.

We recently conducted an extensive survey looking at what sort of events you would like to see in future, what form they should take, and what content they should cover. This program has been designed in response to that survey’s findings, incorporating regulars such as our annual general meeting (AGM) and our Christmas Golf Day, as well as educational site tours, breakfast seminars and networking functions.

The events listed below will be added to as the year continues, so keep an eye on the AMTIL website for more information as it emerges.

Its highly advanced techniques and passionate staff are contributing directly and demonstrably to scientific advances and industrial innovations with medical, social and economic benefits for all Australians.

AMTIL Business Mastery Breakfast Seminar – “Show me the Money”.

The Centre Ivanhoe, Ivanhoe VIC

The Business Mastery Seminar is one of a number of breakfast events we have planned that will focus mainly on business development topics. The Business Mastery event will address two topics:

  • What is your business worth? – Three key considerations for valuing manufacturing companies. William Buck’s Corporate Advisory Director Tony Hood will discuss the three core elements for determining a manufacturing business’s value, how to increase it, and how to determine potential share value as an employee retention strategy.
  • How are you being paid? – Best practice remuneration strategies for business owners. William Buck Business Advisory Director Damian Sutherland outlines the best practice for structuring your manufacturing business to legitimately minimise tax paid by your business for your salary while ensuring work safety regulations are met.
