Succession Planning

Developing and implementing a well-designed succession plan is essential to the long-term success of the business you’ve grown and developed from the very beginning.

One day you are going to need to exit the business, through retirement or sale. Ultimately, for your business to truly be a realisable asset, you need to constantly be working on it with a view to selling it sometime in the future.

People want to buy businesses that work, not businesses that are run by people that work and work and work. Succession Planning then is an ongoing, ever improving process and is as much about working on your business as planning for the future.
