There are 3 essential steps most owners miss to insure a no-regret sale. They aren't difficult, but moving forward without them will cost you time, money and peace of mind.

If you are the seller,

  1. Why worry that you got the best deal? 
  2. How you are going to continue your lifestyle without a regular salary? 
  3. Or find yourself stuck in a re-negotiation during the due diligence phase of your sale

If you are buying,

  1. Why wonder if you overpaid? 
  2. Worry if you were treated fairly?
  3. Wonder how you are going to service the debt from your purchase, send your kids to college and retire yourself one day?

And, as always, you will connect with like-minded individuals as you learn.

Continental Breakfast - 8:00-8:30 a.m. | Program - 8:30-11:30 a.m. | Goering Center, Room 359

When your family brewery business reaches 1,000 employees, doing the "Right Thing" and doing it quickly is essential to success and remaining authentic. As the Interim Chief of Staff & Vice President of Sales, Ellie Preslar has a unique outsider's perspective of managing a family business and Board - once an advisory board and now a Board of Directors.  From keeping the founders philosophies about growth to putting it all on the line to finance the deal, we will look at brand positioning, the role of the Board of Directors and how "Doing the Right Thing," made all the difference.

Multi-Day Programs

Learn more about our multi-day programs here, and join us for a complimentary overview.

Best places to work are the result of a strong business culture. Culture is in fact the most critical component to business success. It may also be the most undervalued and underrepresented area of a business. It's hard for growing businesses to provide the leadership and resources needed to intentionally shape their culture. But cultures will develop on their own, and if left alone, may produce unintended and undesirable outcomes. Becoming a Best Place to Work: An Action Plan for Leadership is built especially, but not only, for resource-constrained companies who value and want the impact a great culture delivers.

Gain the methods, messaging, and tools to negotiate from a position of power and strength. Say goodbye to fear-based pricing and unnecessary discounting and hello to courageous pricing conversations, higher prices, and improved profits.

Too often, next generation successors and rising leaders are completely left out of and/or are overwhelmed by business finance conversations. In this program, new and emerging leaders become empowered to understand their company's financial data, giving them the confidence to engage in the conversation and make better business decisions.

This Webinar Series is designed to help business owners and top sales leaders understand what an efficient and effective sales organization needs to succeed as their selling environment gets tougher.
