Exit Planning 101 - Preparing for a Successful Exit

12 Week Programme Delivered Live Online

Most business owners leave exit planning far too late. By the time they want or need to exit their business, there is inadequate time to prepare the business sale. This either forces them to sell the business for a lot less than they were hoping, they are forced to close the business down, some owners are forced to continue working in their business.


The next Exit Planning 101 programme begins on Tuesday 10th September 2024 3.30pm (UK)

Each session lasts 45 minutes with extra time for live Q&A.

Get in touch to access recordings of previous sessions.

The first session is free to attend. Decide at the end of the session if you would like to commit to the full programme (£297+VAT) with your investment fully guaranteed.

Each week we will focus on a different aspect of exit planning:
