[Advanced Workshop] Mastering the Triggering Event Workshop with Chris Snider

Room: Naylor

8:00 am - 4:30 pm


Meet Your Presenter

Learn How to Conduct the Triggering Event

The first step in the Value Acceleration Methodology is to identify what value the business currently has and diagnose the transferable value killers within the organization. This enterprise value assessment correlates to a range of value for comparable companies, which provides a baseline measurement of value moving forward. This is needed to produce a prioritized action plan for business planning, tax and estate planning, and personal planning. This discovery phase of Value Acceleration is called the Triggering Event.

During this interactive workshop with creator of the Value Acceleration Methodology, Chris Snider, professional advisors will participate in three modules that will: 1) help them better understand how to conduct the enterprise value assessment, 2) teach effective ways to engage business owners and manage engagements, 3) provide a review of the tools and deliverables used, and 4) guide them on how to effectively manage teams of professional advisors from multiple disciplines.
