    Family Businesses: Options for Growth, Succession, and Exit

    $25.00

    Business owners often face the question of what’s next – the decision between keeping and growing the business or transitioning it.  Growing the business has its associated short-term rewards and long-term risks.  Transitioning the business has the complication of whether it is in whole or in part; internally to the family or team; or selling to the nebulous third party.  Business owners often have the feeling that the advice they are receiving is prematurely narrowed.  This session will identify and discuss the pros and cons of the myriad of potential strategies as well as the improvements you should start making now to increase the value of the business.  Learn how to navigate the tributaries and ramifications of your potential choices.

  • The Gathering 2018 – Family Businesses: Attractiveness, Readiness, and Valuation – Factors that Business Owners Often Don’t Know

    $25.00

    Simply recasting financials to find a new EBITDA and estimating a factor does not make a true valuation – even when combined with a calculation of fixed assets and goodwill. Misunderstanding enterprise value, a lifestyle business, and/or discrete and non-discrete intangible assets often cause businesses to lose value. Learn the nuances of Assessments/Valuations and how to transition from a Wisdom-driven Business to a Value-driven Business. Value-driven Businesses increase your options by systematizing the magic you’ve applied to creating success up to this point. They command stability for internal transitions, as well as the highest market value if you decide to sell.

    Engaging Closely Held Businesses – Value Creation and Transitions

    $25.00 $0.00

    Often, many of the business transition conversations business owners have already had have not addressed the design of the transition itself.  The topic has been overly generalized and prematurely narrowed: keep versus sell.  Help your business owner clients navigate the tributaries and ramifications of their potential choices and figure out what they want.  Learn how to implement a process that leads business owners through all phases of transition, from their current Wisdom-driven Business to a Value-driven Business.  The resulting increased clarity for the owner and market value of the business expands options and solidifies choices for eventual transition: if, when, how and how much.

    The Legacy Conversation: A Powerful Way to Deepen Your Connection to Clients and Prospects

    $25.00

    How do we as advisors have those important conversations with clients about how to pass their values on to their next generation in a business succession scenario. Values that are based in work ethic, family, philanthropy, and faith have had much to do with the success of the family business. A successful transfer can be all the more satisfying when those legacies are an intentional part of the succession plan. When you can initiate and lead that conversation, you will become a more valuable resource to your business owner clients. In this presentation, we will outline some strategies that will give you the confidence to lead your clients into this space and generate productive outcomes.

    The Elusive $15MM – $75MM Entrepreneurial Family

    $25.00

    Between the >$10MM wealthy and the incredibly UHNW Family Office of $300MM+ lies the oft misunderstood and under-appreciated family business founder, family, and staff who have concentrated risk and have prevailed against the onslaught of business, personal, and advisory challenges. What do they think, want, and need? Why do they heed some advice and not others? How does an advisor differentiate him/herself with true “value-add” services and enjoy high client retention and amazingly higher fees year-after-year? Hint: It isn’t firm size that matters and transactional mindsets seldom work.
