MiQUEST, the year-old merger of GLEQ and SBAM’s Small Business Foundation, continues to provide top-notch learning opportunities for entrepreneurs.
Coming up this week:
Attracting and Retaining Talent for the Savvy CEO. Do you worry about attracting talent or losing key people to a competitor? Are you searching for ways to motivate your top people? Attorney Matt Bower covers the ins and outs of using equity, incentives and employment agreements to attract, retain and motivate your mission-critical employees. Learn the tools used by savvy CEOs, and participate in group discussion on how these tools might be deployed in a variety of companies.
Wednesday, February 25, 8-9:30 a.m.
Varnum, 333 Bridge St. NW, Grand Rapids
Term Sheet Savvy. It may be short and (usually) non-binding, but a poorly negotiated term sheet can lead to misunderstanding, mistrust and delays, and for the non-savvy, can undermine the hoped-for transaction. Attorney Matt Bower will show you how to avoid the common pitfalls, and turn the term sheet into a negotiating tool that strengthens your position in the final deal. Share your questions and find out what other CEOs are doing with their term sheet negotiations.
Thursday, February 26, 8-9:30 a.m.
Varnum, 39500 High Pointe Boulevard #350, Novi
Exit Strategy Planning for the Savvy CEO. Potential future exits are not “one size fits all” – each company requires a unique solution. The owners, directors and key executives should know and weigh the options, which can change as the company evolves over time. Attorney Kevin DiDio will show you how to plan now to maximize your future options and results. Hear from other CEOs and contribute to the conversation.
Friday, February 27, 8-9:30 a.m.
Varnum, 201 N. Washington Square, Suite 910, Lansing
