Succession Planning

Wed 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Join fellow Business Owners and our guest panel for a workshop discussing Succession Planning and how to structure your business to prosper now, have resources to enjoy your retirement, and leave a legacy for your family and successors. Curt Henry will discuss the elements of a successful transition plan for your business. By structuring the business properly you will realize a much greater value at the time of transition but equally important much of what is done to prepare a business such as operating systems and strong team accountability will provide your business with immediate benefits. Value of a business is important but Transferrable Value more so. Curt has extensive management experience as Vice President and General Manger of a local manufacturing facility. Curt has been working with business owners the past 14 year helping them to grow their business as a Business Coach and Consultant. David Greene's talk will center on the pitfalls that can derail business momentum – whether that momentum has been building a short time of for generations. Minimizing the impact of taxes always helps to preserve business momentum. There are scenarios when the business and tax environments intersect in such a way that not planning for taxes can completely derail a business. Nathan Goodwin will discuss the importance of looking at the overall financial perspective of owning a business. He will help you determine the asset level needed to generate desired income and how the business fits in your total estate. Other considerations such as beneficiaries/ generational planning and investment management are some of the areas to be discussed.
