5 C's of Business Succession Webinar

There is no magic recipe that will guarantee the preservation of your family relationships and the perpetuation of your business. There are, however, five key items that if not planned for will almost assuredly lead to heartache, negative family dynamics and a poor chance at business succession.

During this webinar Grey Merryman, CFA will facilitate a discussion with our guest speaker, Dave Specht, Director of the Global Family Business Institute at the Drucker School of Management. They will cover a series of questions that will address the traditional options around Business Succession Planning (keep or sell, management buyout, ESOP) as well as the 5 C’s in an attempt to humanize this very difficult process of determining the future of a privately held company.

The 5 C’s you will learn about are:
  • Contingency Planning
  • Cash Flow
  • Compensation
  • Communication
  • Conflict
