Succession Planning Webinar

August 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join us May 24, for Our Succession Planning Webinar!

This month, the University of Northern Iowa’s Advance Iowa program is launching a free webinar focused on succession planning – Business Transitions – Planning Ahead for the Future of Your Business.


Succession planning is an easy thing to put off and not address until its too late. If you start early with the end in mind, you can avoid a lot of the conflict and create more opportunities for yourself. At the end, the goal is to transition your business according to your wishes. This may involve succession to a family member, selling the business to key employees, other interested parties or a number of other scenarios. Scott Bailey, Dan Beenken, and Jayne Kielman have been working with businesses throughout the state of Iowa to do just this and are bringing their expertise to you through these webinars.

What You Will Learn from the Webinar:

  • Top 5 Succession Planning Questions You Should be Asking
  • 3 High Impact Planning Ideas
  • 3 Strategic Planning Concepts to Increase the Value of Your Business

What You Will Leave With After the Webinar:

  • Financial Health Screening Report with Industry Benchmarks
  • GrowthWheel 360 Screening Survey
  • Written List of Resources and Self-Helps

Reserve your spot today, and learn more about how to plan now for later!
