    There is no better time to start working on, as opposed to in, your business and building value than the present. We will cover leading practices and strategies for building company value. As a leader or owner who wants to prepare for your succession or sell your business, you will learn how to increase the value dramatically by working on the eight elements that investors and acquirers consider.

However, for owners and leaders, it is more important than ever to get educated and prepare with professional assistance to help manage your business and accelerate your company's value.
