As the overall pace of growth in the UK economy continues to slow, companies are under ever more pressure to boost business growth prospects. Market uncertainty caused by global economic and geopolitical developments and an increasingly competitive business environment have driven forward-thinking organisations to seek new ways to find growth. But where do the most rewarding opportunities lie?
The Financial Times and Rackspace are pleased to present a new series of roundtables to discuss how the UK’s largest private sector companies are responding to market developments and the strategies they are employing in the search for better growth and profitability. Whether this is through increasing revenue from new and existing customers, targeted global expansion, or by investing in innovation, we will look at which initiatives are making the biggest impact. Results from a recent survey of 150 firms by FT Remark, commissioned by Rackspace, will inform the discussion.
