All Good Things...
There will come a time when all of us will (or have already) shifted our role relative to the workforce in some way:
sell our businesses
shift to another “career” (including some form of retirement).
In this interactive session, we will consider the Final Frontier - its effect and the opportunities presented.
In the next fifteen years, the majority of boomer-built privately owned companies will change hands:
Top 10% + of boomer companies will have aggressive suitors and profit handsomely
Next 30% - 40% of their companies will require hard work to prepare for sale and they will receive less than they expected/planned/hope
The bottom 50% ± of these companies will be of little interest and the jobs, relationships, and equity built over decades will vanish.
The exit matters, for the owner, the employees, and the customers. The opportunity comes from the need for sustainability after the “hub of the wagon wheel” leaves.
Whether an owner or a doer, the how, when, conditions and manner in which we intend to make this shift and what the roadmap might look for us – and for those who follow our leadership is the legacy we leave behind or create going forward.
Takeaways from the Session
The Final Frontier from different perspectives
