It’s Wise Up Wednesday: A Subby’s Guide To Not Get Screwed! Bookings Now Open

Bookings Now Open – 101 Things You Need To Know About Your Subcontracts

If you’re like most of the Specialist Contractors, Trade Contractors and Subcontractors we work with on a daily basis, you could be forgiven for thinking that the construction world is conspiring against you. And onerous terms and subby bashing only make the job more difficult and stressful.

And it’s only going to get worse!

If you think that it’s tough now, wait until the effects of the Brexit chaos and resultant slow down really start to hit. Not to mention the squeeze on cash flow that the VAT Reverse Charge is going to have on your business.

There Are Only 3 Things You Can Do About It

  1. You and your team need to get very, very smart very quickly
  2. Build a commercial and contractual fortress to withstand what’s coming
  3. You need help and support. You cannot do this on your own.

So, here’s how with our interactive workshop. Here are all the secrets that you need to reduce the risks, have a less stressful life and increase your profits?

Here’s how to get very, very smart very quickly and build that commercial and contractual fortress, with our interactive workshop.

At StreetwiseSubbie, we know that you guys are the backbone of UK construction and that from time you need a little help to navigate your way through the construction jungle.

We see the effects of poorly negotiated contracts every day and the devastating effects it can have on both business finances and business personnel. Don’t let it happen to you, come and ensure your business is protected.

If you have been to one of our seminars before you will know that we know our stuff, and this interactive workshop brings you even greater in-depth knowledge of all the the onerous terms you need to watch out for and all the tricks and dodges the Contractors use to make your life as difficult as possible.

This is another great step for you to take to protect your business and maximise your profits. And it’s interactive style is fun and thought provoking!
