If you are a boomer business owner and you don’t think your staff and your competitors are wondering what will happen when you exit your business, then you are fooling yourself. If you aren't working your succession plan already, then your staff are worried and your competitors already assume you are getting ready to exit given the economic recovery. So if you are worried about attending this session because other’s may find out, they’ll be more relieved to know you are working on a plan to transition the business to keep it growing regardless of your involvement.

Don't leave it to chance. A great business exit doesn’t just happen. It is a conscious transformation done well before the deal, with a clear "Know to Grow to Sell" process, planned action, executed well, producing the most options to deliver the maximum value when it’s time for your exit. Leaving it to the last minute is a huge mistake, especially considering that; only 1 in 10 small-medium businesses sell as planned. Come learn what you can do to set yourself up for a great exit.


Join us and you'll learn:

  • Why failing to plan is the same as planning to fail in selling your business.

  • The 3 stages of a great exit you must plan for & the 2 plans you’ll need.

  • Your Owner’s Exit Plan Checklist. (KNOW)

  • Your Business’s Growth Plan, to make it exit ready & exit attractive. (GROW)

  • Your Exit Options & 10 points to structure the best after-tax deal. (SELL)

Note, this is a “Networkshop™”; an experiential event where people connect, & collaborate in small group discussions to transform these ideas into invaluable take-aways they can use immediately.


Speaker: Brad Gaulin, P.Eng., MBA, is a serial entrepreneur & business coach that has been transforming organizations for over 13 years as a consultant, & for over 40 years as a professional, executive & entrepreneur. https://www.linkedin.com/in/bradgaulin/
