2019 Dallas/Ft. Worth Vistage Executive Summit

Hosted in Irving

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

7:30 am - 4:20 pm

 

 

Change is happening faster than ever.
Make sure you have every advantage.

In our fast-paced world of high-speed technology, few businesses can afford a lax approach to change. High-performing companies are quick, nimble and ready to pounce. They incorporate progressive practices, the latest resources and timely information. They can see around the curves and past their blind spots. They’re not the followers. They are the pacesetters.

And they do not get there on their own.

Join your greater Vistage family and peers to rev up the energy
and kick up your drive at this year’s Vistage Executive Summit.

What is the Vistage Executive Summit?

A powerful event that brings together our peers and Chairs from across your region for a day of learning, inspiration and connection. It’s a day designed to put you on the fast track to more effective leadership, increased performance and better results.

You can count on:

 

You’ll come away with keen insights, broadened perspectives, practical tips to implement immediately, and mind racing possibilities.

Afternoon Session | Preparing today to exit your business in the future

Location/Time: | 12:05 - 1:35 PM

Presenter: Dave Heymann, Senior Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor, Generational Group

Years from now, most business owners will be dismayed to learn all of the things that they should have been doing to build value in their business. Far too often, business owners don’t prepare an exit strategy until they are ready to exit and that is too late to learn how to build value. What is the value of the business today and what should owners be doing to increase that value over time? Should I sell in the future or seek a strategic partner now to give me the resources to build the business in the future? Is the value in the future going to be in my P&L or my intangible assets? Dave Heymann, Senior Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor with Generational Group will answer these questions and more:
  • What are the best options OTHER than selling
  • How value is REALLY determined in a business
  • How to enhance the value of your company LONG before exiting
