Succession Planning: Preparing Today for Tomorrow

March 14 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

Do you have a succession plan in place? According to a 2023 CFIB study, only one in ten small business owners have a formal succession plan. Unfortunately, many discover the importance of succession planning too late, leading to delayed retirements, businesses being sold in less-than-ideal condition or responding reactively to personal catastrophes, such as illness or death.

This webinar demonstrates how a succession plan improves business value and long-term sustainability and allows for a smooth transition of your business to new ownership. In addition, you will explore the facets of personal and business goals in conjunction with the strategic, operational, human resource, communications, stakeholder relationships, and other considerations required to put the “success” into succession planning.

What you will learn:

  • What is a succession plan, and why have one?
  • What are my potential exit options?
  • What are the key questions to ask?
  • How can I take action in building my succession plan?

Join us to learn how building a plan today can yield a better succession tomorrow.
