Instructor

Concord Convention Center

Description

The truth is that everyone exits their business at some point, whether by choice or through circumstance. Alarmingly, it's estimated that 55% of business exits are unplanned in timing due to extenuating circumstances. The question is not if we will exit; rather, the questions are when, how, and whether our exit will achieve the objectives -we desire. The concept of legacy as a business planning tool is a timeless principle that if planned and executed well can result in a successful leadership transition that preserves the integrity of one's business into the future and ultimately their legacy. The course presents three overarching methods to consider when approaching exit planning (Le.family succession, internal sales or transfers, and third-party sales) and identifies resources available to facilitate each.

The truth is that everyone exits their business at some point, whether by choice or through circumstance. Alarmingly, it's estimated that 55% of business exits are unplanned in timing due to extenuating circumstances. The question is not if we will exit; rather, the questions are when, how, and whether our exit will achieve the objectives -we desire. The concept of legacy as a business planning tool is a timeless principle that if planned and executed well can result in a successful leadership transition that preserves the integrity of one's business into the future and ultimately their legacy. The course presents three overarching methods to consider when approaching exit planning (Le.family succession, internal sales or transfers, and third-party sales) and identifies resources available to facilitate each.

Thursday, November 17, 2022 at 10:30 AM

Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948

Description

The truth is that everyone exits their business at some point, whether by choice or through circumstance. Alarmingly, it's estimated that 55% of business exits are unplanned in timing due to extenuating circumstances. The question is not if we will exit; rather, the questions are when, how, and whether our exit will achieve the objectives -we desire. The concept of legacy as a business planning tool is a timeless principle that if planned and executed well can result in a successful leadership transition that preserves the integrity of one's business into the future and ultimately their legacy. The course presents three overarching methods to consider when approaching exit planning (Le.family succession, internal sales or transfers, and third-party sales) and identifies resources available to facilitate each.
