Cheers David. Great presentation. Slide 21 should be drilled into the consciousness of all managers: manage what you can control (I’d add that there’s no point in trying manage what you can’t control and its a sure path to destruction); focus on quality; lower risk; and reduce debt. For PR businesses, managers need to stick firm to the fundamental 25/55/20 ratios and keep an iron grip on the debtor book.
