Business exit strategy seminar

The Smart Business Exit Strategy

Geoff Green will discuss smart business exit strategies

Getting properly rewarded for your blood, sweat and tears in your business

The next Baw Baw Business & Community Network Events dinner will be held at the Warragul Reception & Conference Centre on Wednesday, 24 May.

Whether you’re a baby boomer business owner close to retirement, busy growing your business or a young entrepreneur just starting, one day you will exit your business. But will you achieve a smart business exit?

Guest speaker Geoff Green is one of Australia’s leading business exit strategists and author of “The Smart Business Exit: Getting Rewarded for your Blood, Sweat, and Tears,” and will share his key insights on business exit strategies.  Attendees will receive a copy of his book.

Over a 30 year career in corporate law, business consulting and his own business ventures, Mr Green has helped hundreds of business owners not only build great businesses, but also get rewarded for their blood, sweat and tears when they exit.

Mr Green has also been involved in his own business exits. In particular, he was a co-founder and the initial managing director of Bendigo Stock Exchange, which was established as a start-up company and sold five years later to the National Stock Exchange.

He is also a member of the international advisory board of The Value Builder System, a North American organisation developing one of the world’s largest and fastest growing networks of business exit advisers.

Mr Green will also deliver his presentation to a breakfast event in Traralgon and a lunch event in Inverloch the following day, Thursday 25 May.

The networking dinner is $40 for a two course meal and will be held at 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start on Wednesday, 24 May.  Pre-event registration is essential with registrations due 19 May.
