The goal of this presentation is for participants to gain a broader understanding of the many business and emotional issues that are specific to a generational business transition. In particular to appreciate the requirements to develop a long-term plan that will lead to successful succession planning where the extended family unit is maintained in a healthy state. The issues around succession planning are far broader than a sale to a third party and include considerations of all family members, non-economic benefits such as company car, Jets or Bomber tickets, travel, an office and many other factors that do not play into arm's length dispositions.
