    The New Jersey chapter is excited to continue our programming year with another thoughtful and insightful meeting. Our chapter is growing and welcoming professional advisors who help business owners plan for a successful exit. As we continue to examine many of the different planning considerations and decisions an owner needs to face, our members participate in this interactive discussion. We welcome your attendance at our next meeting.

    Our December meeting will focus on “Top 10 Ways to Improve the Value of Your Business” In this session, we will explore some real-life examples of organizations which looked to increase their value prior to sale. We will examine the multiple areas for the company owners to review – customer concentration, management teams, product development among others.

    To honor the “Season of Giving”, we are offering all current members the opportunity to invite one guest to our December meeting. The guest must not have attended any of our meetings in the past. Please email John Dowd (jdowd@bernstein.com) your guest’s information.

    This highly interactive session will allow for participation by attendees in a collaborative format. As an association of experienced advisory professionals for business owners and their companies, we are all focused on delivering the highest level of subject matter expertise to our clients and we would value your expertise and insights. We invite you to join us for this exciting event and for the entire series this year!

    To make it easy to remember, we’ll always meet on the 3rd Wednesday morning of each month through June 2020, so please set up a recurring calendar appointment now so you won’t miss an XPX breakfast!

"At XPX, I find really great people network with, and I enjoy being able to prospect with a cadre of experienced and accomplished high level advisors, at one location, where you can learn about their expertise at a much deeper level People at XPX tend to be more worldly not only due to the nature of the M&A biz — but as they hail from multiple disciplines over their years of experience.

XPX differs from other networking learning orgs in that it maintains a heavy focus on education but also is a group where pure professionalism is weighed more highly than just prospecting, with experienced professionals looking to gain an understanding of what you do and how you do it as opposed to just making a sale.

I have developed multiple tax clients and projects, but more importantly I value the fantastic relationships that I know over time will not only produce lots of new business but enable me to confidently refer to others e.g., attorneys in the group — and enable me to look good when I recommend. I love going to XPX for the social side, for the power networking groups –one of mine splintered off into an ongoing mastermind group sharing business ideas and mindfully addressing challenges — and, of course, the learning."
