2020 Dallas/Ft. Worth Vistage Executive Summit

Hosted in Irving

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

7:15 a.m. - 5:10 p.m.

 

 

Lead the way together.

You are the pioneers of your time. Innovating. Riding the wave of disruption. Being the disruptors. When you think you’ve found a foothold, things change. And yet — you still lead fearlessly.

You are here, because the best is not enough. You know what you’re capable of, and your peers support you. You are leading the way — together. With an impact that resonates from business, to community, to the world.

Diverse perspectives. Collective wisdom. Shared experience.

Your Vistage Executive Summit is a day to gather with peers who uniquely understand your triumphs and challenges. From cutting-edge speakers, to hot-button breakout sessions. It’s an opportunity to step away from the minutiae of the day-to-day to work on your business, rather than just in it.

Think of it as a synergy of the resources you leverage all year.

Lend your voice to a conversation incomplete without your insights.

Maybe, you’re feeling overwhelmed. Or, you fear being left behind. Though it can feel lonely at the top, know this — you are not in it alone. Roll up your sleeves and gain actionable new ideas to bring back to your team.

Your leadership journey is unique to you. Join your peers on this day, and consider the mountains you’ll move tomorrow.

Afternoon Breakout Session | Building value for a future exit

Location/Time: | 11:55 - 1:25 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
