Our recent family business survey revealed that more than a quarter of all business owners plan to exit their business within the next 5 to 10 years, yet 1 in 8 have not considered how.

Join us as we discuss the options available to businesses who are 'planning to let go', whether that's passing or selling to a family member, considering management buyout or selling to the highest bidder, and why preparation is essential.

Guest speakers to be confirmed.
