Three entrepreneurs will be openly sharing their stories about how they stepped back from their business. They will discuss, from their experiences, what needs to be put into place to either ensure the business continues to run if you do step back, or for building a strong multiple if you’re considering a sale. Each of our three speakers will discuss their own experiences and share their learnings and challenges with you.
If you are interested in hearing from entrepreneurs who have already stepped back from their business and implemented succession planning, then this event is for you. Join us to hear our experienced entrepreneurs, and members of The Supper Club, share their own experiences, warts and all.
This is an informal event open only to business owners and senior directors to come and learn from our award winning, high growth Supper Club members. After our speakers have shared their stories, we open the floor for questions from you, which makes for a really interactive event!
