Denver, CO, August 14, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Who: Business Enterprise Institute (BEI), a Denver-based Exit Planning Think Tank welcomes over 200 leading professional advisors from across North America for BEI's 2016 Exit Planning Conference on August 25-26 at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado.
What: BEI's 13th Annual Exit Planning Conference is the only meeting of its kind, bringing together experienced professional advisors from across North America, including CPAs, business attorneys, estate planning attorneys, wealth and investment advisors, insurance professionals, business consultants, business brokers and investment bankers in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative meeting to share best practices and recent trends in helping business owner clients plan for the future. This year’s conference includes nationally recognized speakers Lisë Stewart, founder and President of Galliard International and found of the Galliard Family Business Advisor Institute, Bo Burlingham, author of Finish Big: How Great Entrepreneurs Exit Their Companies on Top, and Doug Stevenson, creator of The Story Theater Method.
Where: BEI's 13th Annual Exit Planning Conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt, 1750 Welton Street, Denver, Colorado.
When: Thursday and Friday August 25-26, 2016
Why: Professional advisors who share a passion for working with business owners to plan for a successful future are a rare and valuable breed. Many lawyers, accountants and consultants claim to help business owners plan for the future, but the scope of their experience and advice is just too narrow to address the complex needs of today's business owner clients. BEI advisors have extensive training and experience in working with business owners. They know when to lead the charge toward a solution and when to bring in other experts to support the planning process. The BEI Annual Exit Planning Conference is the only time each year when all of this expertise can be found in one place.
Details: Private businesses represent a significant portion of the national economy. The owners of closely held businesses, many of whom are Baby Boomers, do not have access to the public markets when they are ready to sell their stock and retire. BEI's network of highly-trained professional advisors helps local business owners across the county create unique and customized plans to smoothly transition their businesses to the next generation of ownership using a process called "Exit Planning." These trained and qualified advisors get together every year in Denver to discuss the latest trends in planning for business owner clients and to talk through case studies. The purpose of the BEI Annual Conference is to maintain the cutting-edge and up-to-date knowledge base of the advisors in BEI's network so that business owners everywhere can benefit from the training and ideas shared at the Conference.
John H. Brown, founder of BEI and author of Exit Planning: The Definitive Guide, says, "Business owners face a number of very difficult challenges given the current economic and tax environment. A comprehensive, customized Exit Plan, created by a business owner in collaboration with a BEI advisor and the owner's own local professionals, can make the difference between a successful exit from the business and total failure."
