Preparing Your Business for Sale

 

Paul Maarschalk is a seasoned Chartered Business Valuator and Chartered Professional Accountant practising through his firm Maarschalk Valuations Inc (www.mvi.ca). Paul has spent 30+ years in various financial roles, the last 10 years being focused solely on business valuations.

Clients have ranged from small “mom & pop” retail stores to large multinational corporations. A business valuation includes an analysis of both the prospects for a business as well as the associated risks. Improving the prospects of the business, and reducing the risks, inevitably boost the value of a business and are thus the key issues to be addressed in preparing a business for sale.

The webinar on Preparing your business for sale will guide participants through the various issues that should be addressed to improve your chances of a successful exit from your business.

Activating Your Network: Networking for Introverts & Extroverts

 

Building and maintaining a strong professional network is one of the most impactful ways to grow your business. However, many professionals fail to benefit from the opportunities waiting in their networks because they don’t know how to effectively connect with and follow through with the people they meet.

Whether you are a keen mover and shaker or an introvert who avoids it like the plague, this is a program that you won’t want to miss.

It’s no surprise that the trends show people are interested in spending money on experiences over things.

How can you work together with non-profit organizations and businesses to create meaningful experiences for your visitors and tourists within your community (and surrounding area)?
