Build a business so good everyone wants to buy it!

Everyone wants the best house on the street that makes the neighbours jealous.  Why not build a business that’s the envy of all your competitors?

This month’s guest speaker Brett Madsen created his own business back in 2000 after a career in consulting. Over the following years he received several unprompted offers from buyers who saw real value in his growing business, but he wasn’t ready to sell yet.  Finally, after 10 years he received an offer too good to refuse.  He made a staggering return and sold to a UK company looking for new international markets.

What was so exciting about his business to elicit so many offers?  Come and listen to Brett’s story to discover how to grow a business so successful that competitors will pay big money to buy you out.

Rebecca Flynn from WMD Law, Miranda handled the contractual negotiations of Brett’s business and Darren Vardy of SV Partners Caringbah uncovered its real value which was higher than initially expected. Both will be at the event and happy to answer your questions.

The outcomes from this presentation will enable you to:

  • Gain insight into how to setup your business to sell
  • Business Valuation
  • Think about strategies to assist your business
  • Motivation to move on

The topics you will cover include:

  • Building a successful business
