Many business owners focus on increasing profits, assuming that business value will increase accordingly. They don’t understand that non-financial issues can seriously impact the value of their business, limit profits, and compromise their personal quality of life.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why focusing on profit is not enough
  • The 8 key drivers for building a valuable business
  • Where to focus in order to increase the value of your company
  • How value, profit, and quality-of-life can increase simultaneously
  • How to build a business that is ready for transition – when the owner is ready


The presentation is based on the research of John Warrillow, who wrote the best-selling books Built to Sell and The Automatic Customer.  The author identified 8 key drivers for increasing business value, based on surveys of over 7,000 business owners.  The result is the Value Builder Process, a comprehensive methodology for increasing business value.

  • The Presentation lasts approximately 20 minutes
  • An optional Question and Answers session may last another 5 to 20 minutes
  • Registrants will have the opportunity to receive their complimentary Value Builder Score, and learn how they compare to industry peers
