Planning an exit strategy is the most overlooked consideration of a business strategy, yet the exit strategy plays a key role determining the strategic direction for your company. By not proactively planning an exit strategy, business owners, their heirs or their successors may find their future options limiting.
Some entrepreneurs consider their exit strategy as how the business transitions to the next major stage. From this perspective, entrepreneurs don’t necessarily leave the business, however their role changes significantly. Therefore, it’s imperative to carefully evaluate your business plan, strategy and vision to determine what an effective exit strategy looks like for you and your business.
We are delighted to extend a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first hand how Coraggio can expand and future proof your business followed by an upfront and personal keynote speaker session with the CEO of Oasis Partners, Michael McGrath at our next Melbourne Advisory Board Day on Friday, 13 August.
Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being a part of a Coraggio peer to peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.
Followed by Michael McGrath who will provide insights into:
- How to prepare a strategy and plan towards selling your business
- Analysing and mitigating risks
- Optimising your corporate strategy.
