Mentor Advisory Forum: Put the ‘Success’ in Succession Planning: Family and Employee Ownership

Tuesday, July 7 | 10-11am (PST)

Phone in toll-free from anywhere in BC

Succession planning is an essential part of doing business- especially if your business is family-owned.  Find out how to develop a succession plan and discover how you can use Employee Share Ownership Plans (ESOPs) to grow and exit your company.  We’ve compiled an expert panel that works with small businesses who want to develop a strategic exit strategy and who want an ESOP tailored to their specific needs and goals.

In this FREE interactive phone-in session you will learn:

  • Best practices in developing and managing a succession plan in your family business.
  • Leadership development as part of your succession plan.
  • How you can use an Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP) to grow and exit your business.
  • Overview of ESOPs, what they are, how they are used in Canada.
  • Best practices when developing an ESOP.

Women and men welcome!

Host: Dawn McCooey, Skills Development Manager, Women’s Enterprise Centre
