DES starts ELITE programme – a London Stock Exchange initiative

DES have been hand selected to be part of a programme called ELITE. This innovative platform is developed by the London Stock Exchange Group in conjunction with the Imperial College Business School who have selected only 20 companies across the UK, to which DES is one of them! The programme continues over a period of 18 months.

So what is the ELITE programme?
The programme helps to facilitate long-term structure engagement between ambitious growing businesses, industry experts and the corporate advisory and investor community, helping them prepare and structure for the next stages of growth.

The programme commenced on Wednesday 8th November with Sean Egan (MD of DES) and Bill Dugdale (CEO of DES) opening the London Stock market along with this years ELITE cohort. This was followed by meeting other members within the cohort, exploring the business’ models and aspirations, routes to growth how to strategize and plan for continued scaling of the business.

Sean and Bill listened to a multitude of presentations covering a variety of topics:

  • Routes to growth and measuring & monitoring performance – Professor Nelson Phillips, Imperial College Business School
  • Strategic thinking for an uncertain world – Davide Sola, 3H Partners
  • Lessons from my entrepreneurial journey – Nick Jenkins, Founder, Moonpig

DES are privileged to be part of such as prestigious programme. We will be following the journey to which DES will be taking over the next 18 months.
