    HOW AND WHY OWNERS DO BUSINESS PLANNING – - OR NOT

    What Business Advisors Can Learn From Their Clients

    A SESSION FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVISORS (XPX MEMBERS and NON-MEMBERS)
    and
    BUSINESS OWNERS

    THIS WILL BE THE ONLY CHICAGO CHAPTER XPX PROGRAM IN MAY

    To spin an old line – planning can be scary. Especially if it is about the future. Having heard from advisors on how and why owners should conduct business planning, it is time to hear from the owners themselves. Our panel of owners from diverse industries will explain obstacles and fears related to business planning, areas they struggle with, and how and why they have prepared for the future, including: Dealing with the unexpected, creating growth, recession or decline, succession, and possible sale.

    Please mark your calendar, and invite clients, prospects, or friends.

    Investment:

    XPX Member $50, Business Owner Guest, $35

    Non-Members: $75, Business Owner Guest, $50

TESTIMONIALS

The most valuable part of my participation with XPX is the education about exit planning that I have received from attending meetings and from all the members. XPX is a very approachable group. Everyone is willing and interested in an exchange of ideas. I especially like the Power of Three which enables you to get to know other members better.

Dick Albu, Albu Consulting LLC

I really enjoy the small group interactions at XPX which is different from other organizations. I have also received an engagement from a XPX member.

Alan Booth, Executive Leadership Advisor

XPX offers excellent content based seminars specifically geared towards professionals focusing on the sale or transition of a business. The diverse topics and membership provide strong networking opportunities. Both the targeted content and diverse membership, focusing on bringing advisors together as a team to help the client, help XPX stand out from other organizations.
