Now open to professionals and advisors attending without business owner guests.
What Owners' Need to Know About Business Improvement, Growth, and Value Creation
Does anyone really know what their business is worth? Unless owners are thinking of selling soon, should they care? Is it possible for an owner to self-assess his or her business for growth and improvement? If so, how?
To many owners, their businesses are valuable because of the livelihood and lifestyle provided. However, often overlooked or misunderstood is the importance of the business’ value. Especially, when the day to retire arrives. Our panel of experts will de-mystify business value creation, with the goal of helping owners build more valuable and transferable businesses.As a bonus, our introductory speaker will provide insights about why planning can be so challenging, offer some suggestions for overcoming those challenges, and discuss the importance of addressing long term business and personal plans with your family over the coming holidays.
