  • Maximise the Value of your Business – the Importance of Succession Planning – Speaker: Craig West, Managing Director – Succession Plus
    “Most business owners go into business planning to maximise the value and extract that value (most often by selling) when they exit. But the research tells us most don’t have a plan or strategy around how to do this, and therefore often fail to either maximise the value or extract the value, or both. Craig West, Managing Director at Succession Plus, shares the latest research and key issues that help business owners obtain maximum value and achieve a successful exit, and outlines why a succession plan is necessary for every business owner, big or small.”
