Sight Care Members’ Webinar: Maximising Business Value for Exit

Tim Luscombe – Speaker, Author, Business Advisor

Helping business owners and leaders buy and sell businesses successfully


Most businesses are not designed to sell – they are a vehicle for the owner to deliver services and make some money whilst doing so. When it comes to selling your business or handing it over to the next generation, you need to take a different view.

In this webinar, Tim Luscombe will share with you some of the pitfalls that prevent businesses reaching maximum value – or selling at all – and some of the strategies you can employ to reduce risk and enhance sustainability.

If you are planning to hand over to the next generation, these same strategies can create a foundation for the future success and ease the transition.

Tim has been advising businesses on strategy, finance, acquisitions and company sales since 2012. He leads a team of business advisors and is a partner in a corporate finance advisory firm.

To attend the Webinar you do not need to register, simply download the Zoom software on whichever device you intend to join us on. See details below.

Please note the new time for this webinar on Thursday 6th April at 6.00pm.

We look forward to welcoming you.
