FREE Webinars – Succession Planning For Your Business? Learn From Businesses Who are Thriving After Their Switch To Employee Ownership

At 10am on Wednesday 2nd December we will be hosting the first in a series of FREE ‘Selling Your Business’ webinars targeted at business owners who are considering the best way to exit their business – even if you’re not quite ready to take that step yet.

No matter what stage your business is at, even if retirement is a long way off for you, having a well-planned exit strategy in place is crucial and it is never too early to start looking at your options.

Attend this workshop to learn how employee ownership using an Employee Ownership Trust offers a tax efficient owner succession that protects your company’s legacy whilst providing a competitive price for your business. Could it be the right succession solution for you?

You will hear from Dylan Huws, Founder and Managing Director of Welsh TV company. Cwmni Da, which became employee owned in 2019. Dylan will explain why they considered employee ownership, how they became employee owned and how things have worked out since.

Attendees will also hear from our Business Advisors, Sarah Owens and Paul Cantrill, who will talk through all ownership and succession options before focussing on employee ownership through an Employee Ownership Trust, how to ensure a smooth process and how we can help you on the journey.
