Do you have a succession plan? 70% of business and farm owners in Canada are looking to transition in the coming years and only 9% have a formal succession plan. Without a plan, businesses and farms will be forced to divest for pennies on the dollar or shut down completely. Education is key for a proper succession plan, and that is why Succession Plan Canada, SuccessionMatching, and Community Futures Capital Region have partnered on three programs for business and farm owners across Alberta. 1. Business Transition Webinar Series
The webinars are 30 minutes each and participants can access them from the privacy of their own home or office.
Featuring an industry expert on each session, the series consists of 10-15 live, online presentations that focus on essential business transition topics. .
Registered participants may join any of the webinars as they happen live, and they have access to recordings for a set period of time.
The fall 2018 Webinar Series included Writing a Succession Plan, Family Transitions, and Legal Considerations among many other critical business transition topics.
