The Creating a Transferable Business Workshop

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:

  • Today’s marketplace of business growth and transfer opportunities.
    An overview and case studies of planning engagements that lead to successful outcomes.
  • A 6-step process to design and implement your plan, including:
    • Personal planning, including a Value Gap calculation
    • How and where you can increase the transferable value of your business today
    • Options that are available for future transition and how to manage the business today towards that future transition.
    • Who is needed on your planning team.
    • Executing your plan.

The presentation portion of the workshop will end at 10:00 a.m. sharp to assure that we stay on schedule. However, an optional question and answer / discussion period will follow, allowing attendees to address their individual questions with the expert presenters.

Event Host:

Charted Course Advisors, LLC   Our clients are business owners who want to increase their personal wealth, much of which is generated by their business.  By planning ahead and focusing on increasing profits and shrinking business risk, our clients grow the value of their business.  This yields more choices in how and when to monetize their investment in their business.  All owners have unique goals.  We help them meet those goals by: their business earning competitive industry returns; positioning the business to thrive in the absence of the owner; and keeping an active pulse on market demand with investors.

The firm’s professionals, Lee Dahmer, Mark Holmes and Mick Wilson, bring the skills, tools and passion to quickly evaluate current and potential business values.  We have held leadership positions in growing private and public companies.  We bring C-level expertise in financial and operational management, business value creation, buying and selling businesses and exit choices.
