The most important role for leaders of any business is to build value in the enterprise. Yet most owners and managers of middle market companies lack the single most important piece of information they need to fulfill that role: A clear understanding of what the business is worth right now. This workshop will give a way to establish that value.
Even excellent leaders leave value creation to chance, says Reed Phillips, CEO of Oaklins DeSilva & Phillips and author of QuickValue: Discover Your Value and Empower Your Business in Three Easy Steps.
In this hands-on workshop, Reed and his co-author, business writer Charlie Slack, will demonstrate how managers can overcome traditional valuation roadblocks and quickly and easily determine what their company is worth, based on its unique value drivers, some readily available information on multiples, and the proprietary QuickValue method, recently featured in Harvard Business Review.
Each participant will receive a copy of QuickValue, as well as a companion workbook guiding them step-by-step through the valuation process.
Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the importance of valuation as a regular, ongoing part of their business. They’ll have a clear path for undertaking the QuickValue process at their own companies and, thanks to the workshop, will already have a head start towards the answers they seek. Reed and Charlie will also offer online resources from Oaklins and elsewhere to aid the process and will share contact information for those who wish to keep the conversation going.
Please note that no refunds will be issued.
Pre-registration is required and will close at Noon on Tuesday, December 6th, 2023. SPACE IS LIMITED. NO WALK-INS WILL BE ADMITTED.
