Contemplating a Transition? This seminar is for you!

Business owners today are facing an unprecedented challenge as they contemplate their transition from an enterprise they founded to a financially rewarding exit with a proper succession structure in place.

Your Very Own Road Map

Based on recent primary and secondary research completed at Royal Roads University, Associate Professor Michael Thompson and Vernon Fischer of Fischer Financial Services (CFP, Family Enterprise Advisor) have created a three step process that allows a business owner to develop an effective transition “road map” which will add valuable clarity and direction.
