    A key to enhancing the value of a company at exit is to first create strategies for growth. But the road to achieve this objective is not a smooth one. We’ll take a look at some common growth challenges that confront many businesses and discuss with our audience how they are experienced and addressed. Our panel consists of three diverse experts: a private equity CEO; a Principal, Practice Leader - Strategy & Business Transformation for a leading accounting/advisory firm; and a former Fortune 500 business executive who’s running a business strategy consulting practice.

TESTIMONIALS

The most valuable part of my participation with XPX is the education about exit planning that I have received from attending meetings and from all the members. XPX is a very approachable group. Everyone is willing and interested in an exchange of ideas. I especially like the Power of Three which enables you to get to know other members better.

Dick Albu, Albu Consulting LLC

I really enjoy the small group interactions at XPX which is different from other organizations. I have also received an engagement from a XPX member.

Alan Booth, Executive Leadership Advisor

XPX offers excellent content based seminars specifically geared towards professionals focusing on the sale or transition of a business. The diverse topics and membership provide strong networking opportunities. Both the targeted content and diverse membership, focusing on bringing advisors together as a team to help the client, help XPX stand out from other organizations.
