Free Online workshop: Selling or succession planning? How to exit successfully

5 Aug 2020 9:30am

[Online workshop]

You’ve put years into building and growing your own business, now find out how to maximise the value of your efforts so you can move on without looking back.

Whether handing the reins over to family, the next generation or looking to sell, this short, practical workshop will take you through the best strategies, tools and models to plan your exit.

Learn, first hand, from case studies and business experts who’ve already made successful exits of their own, how to evaluate your personal versus business situation, the options available to you and what to consider when deciding between succession and exit planning, whether to sell or transfer, do it yourself or use a broker.

More than 50 per cent of owners expect to fund their retirement from the proceeds of selling what for many is their primary asset. Don’t add your name to the more than 45 per cent who have no business or succession plan in place.

Get ahead of your competitors and begin to bed down a process to get started on your exit plan.

Learn how to improve the perceived value of your business in the eyes of potential buyers and how to put steps in place to set up new owners for continued success.

Come away armed with practical tools, templates and check lists, expert tips and advice, and a head start on where to access the right support in future.

A free follow-up one-on-one mentoring session is included in this essential Small Business Victoria workshop, one of many that have helped businesses get started in Victoria for more than 10 years.
