Event description

Description

For a lot of us agency owners, the dream of a BIG exit has been planted in the back of our minds. The reality is not every agency owner will make it to the £1M EBIT mark…

What if we look at this topic in a different way? Will a few million more or less make that much of a difference to your overall happiness or financial stability?

We want to challenge the traditional views of Mergers & Acquisition (M&A) in the agency world and explore new models. How can agency owners achieve reasonable financial independence from selling or merging their agency?

and many more… https://www.sipartnersglobal.com/transactions/

As one of the partners at The Agency Collective, Daniel has spoken to over 3,000 agency owners. He’s identified patterns in what successful agency owners do well. Having seen many M&A deals go well and quite a few fails. Daniel will share a different perspective on the topic. He will also facilitate the questions and discussions with our special guests on the night.
