The Exit Planning Exchange Philadelphia Chapter holds events throughout the Greater Philadelphia & Bucks County area. 

Our association events promote peer learning, networking and visibility for our members in the local private company advisor community.  Topics cover all three phases of the private company life cycle: business value growth, business value transfer and owner life and legacy. These meetings are held in two locations:

  • Downtown Philadelphia on the third Wednesday of each month from 7:30 AM - 9:15 AM.  (Excludes July & August)
  • Suburban Bucks County on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 7:45 AM - 9:30 AM.

We also organize late afternoon meetings in Greater Philadelphia.  Check out our event calendar below for the details on our latest meetings!

Upcoming events

    • October 01, 2020
    • 4:00 PM (EDT)
    • Sign up for this virtual program by the first of the month

    October Power Networking
    The program runs all month
    Deadline to sign up is October 01, 2020 at 4:00 PM EDT

    XPX Members rely on each other for advice and connections. This program helps spark virtual conversations in our network.

    Here's how the Power Networking works:

    • We'll match you with a group of around five fellow members of your XPX Chapter
    • We'll try to balance members from different professions (Accountant, Attorney, Banker, Wealth Advisor, Consultant, etc)
    • Your group can set the virtual meeting for any time in the morning, afternoon or over cocktails
    • Your only commitment is to meet with your group at least once during the month for at least an hour. If the group decides to meet more than once, all the better
    These groups will help us all to get to know one another, discuss the client issues we are encountering, and collectively, perhaps, come to some solutions for a client.

    Suggested discussion topics this month include: 

    • How you are adapting your work processes to current conditions
    • Trends you are seeing as your clients and the economy open up
    • Stories about the best/worst/most inspiring situations you've experienced this month
    The Power of 5 is just one more way we fulfill the promise of XPX of powerful inter-disciplinary connections and learning. You might even find a great resource for your clients!

    When you register, let us know if you have an account to host video conferencing for your group for at least a full hour.

    Let me know if you have any question please email me,

    Sean-Tamba Matthew, Power Networking Chair.

    Cross-Chapter Program also available for those who are interested
