Free Masterclass: How to prepare for a successful business sale

9th March, London  EC2R 7HE

Registration and refreshments 17.30

Event runs 18.00 until 21.30.


The minute you decide to sell your business, you’re faced with a choice; whether to proceed immediately, offering it for sale immediately and running the risk of not getting the price you want or spending some time preparing the business for sale to make it more likely to achieve a premium price. And as with all major events, it takes time to gather together the information you need to make the right decision.

But unless you have sold a business before, you will have no experience to draw on and won’t know what to expect. Our Masterclasses are the next best thing to experiencing a sale yourself but with no risk and in complete confidentiality.

You’ll hear from experienced businessmen, sharing their knowledge and first-hand experiences of buying, growing and selling businesses. In just over 3 hours you’ll gather a huge amount of essential information that could significantly increase the value of your business when you come to sell, including:


  • How businesses are valued
  • What acquirers look for and what they avoid
  • Different exit options
  • The different types of deal structures
  • How to time a sale
  • What you can do in the short to medium term to improve shareholder value
  • How to avoid the major deal killers
  • How the sale process works


The Masterclass includes refreshments, workbook and a free business book.
