The Growth and Transition workshop is designed to provide business owners with the information and tools needed to increase the value of their business in a determined manner that will assist with a future transition from the company.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

    An overview and case studies of planning engagements that lead to successful outcomes.
  • A 6-step process to design and implement your plan, including:
