About the event

Boardwave Workshop - Leadership challenges for growth

Sponsors: Sheffield Haworth 

Speaker: Heath Davies

Join us for a dynamic and interactive "Leadership Challenges for Growth" Workshop tailored specifically for SaaS Founders/CEOs in the scale-up growth phase.

As your business grows, you will face a raft of new leadership challenges to scale your business. The skills and capabilities you developed to take your company from £1m-£10m ARR will not be the same as the skills you will need to take your business from £10m-£50m ARR and beyond, which is why we have designed a Workshop to help you.

The Workshop will revolve around three crucial sub-topics central to a growing organisation's success and will be led by Heath Davies – serial CEO, Chair and Investor. Heath brings with him a wealth of over 20 years experience of working with private and public equity investors from UK, France, and USA. During this time, he has held 5 CEO positions running a diverse global technology portfolio covering services, software and SaaS. 

Heath will guide the workshop alongside the leadership team at Sheffield Haworth Technology:

  • Andrew Parker – Managing Director
  • Nick Povey – Managing Director
  • Steve Morrison – Managing Director
  • Frances Wright – Head of Marketing

Themes we will cover


  • Attracting and retaining top talent: strategies to attract high-performing individuals and ensure long-term commitment.
  • Cultivating a growth-oriented culture: fostering an environment that encourages innovation, collaboration and adaptability.
  • Leadership development: nurturing leadership capabilities at all levels to drive organisational success.


  • Operational efficiency: identifying areas for improvement and streamlining processes to optimise efficiency and reduce bottlenecks.
  • Scalability and flexibility: ensuring processes can adapt and scale seamlessly as your organisation grows.
  • Risk management: developing robust risk management strategies to mitigate potential challenges and uncertainties.


  • Product-market fit: continuously evaluating the alignment of products with market needs and identifying opportunities for enhancement.
  • Innovation and differentiation: strategies for continuous innovation and differentiation to stay ahead of the competition.
  • Roadmap planning: aligning product roadmaps with long-term vision and market trends.

Additionally, how can you as a Founder/CEO improve personally to better enable scaling:


  • Time management, delegation and empowerment: you can’t do everything yourself and scaling takes energy and time – how do you let-go and empower decision-making, prioritize and manage your work-life balance and well-being?
  • Resilience: Scaling is challenging and involves setbacks. Develop resilience and the ability to bounce back, learning from failures to improve future outcomes.
  • Self-awareness and adaptability: Embrace a growth mindset, staying agile and committing to continuous personal development.

This informal and confidential networking session presents an excellent opportunity to continue valuable conversations, exchange ideas and connect with fellow Founders/CEOs and industry experts to discuss real-world issues in a safe and empathetic environment.

Don't miss this chance to gain valuable insights and learn from seasoned professionals and peers.

Secure your spot at the Workshop to strengthen your leadership capabilities and confidently navigate scale-up growth challenges.
