Businesses exist to create value, we all seem to agree on that one. But then why is it that most of us only ever bother valuing the business just before a transaction, or to please our lenders, when we have no choice? And then feel somewhat alienated and intimidated by the process…and are often surprised by the result. Kenneth proposes to change all that with his down-to-earth, jargon-free workshop on a subject that has confused many.
Module 1: First, a peek under the hood. What is business value, exactly?
Time: 09:00 - 10:30
Why should you care? Business value, simply, in plain English Let’s bust some jargon Lighten up, it’s not an exact science
Module 2: Then, we rip off that hood from its hinges Let’s value a business, right now!
Time: 11:00 - 13:00
Laying out the tools
Fire up your laptop, and away we go
From profit to real profit
From real profit to cash
From cash tomorrow to value today
Plus some extra worldly possessions
And voila! We have a value
Okay, now what?
