Entrepreneurs event will show consulting firm MDs how to make £millions! Monday 4 June 2007 PDF Print An event that promises to help entrepreneurs in the management consultancy industry to become millionaires is running in central London this month. The seminar, titled 'Proven Strategies to Build and Sell your Consulting Firm,' is jointly run by Top Consultant and M&A advisory firm Equiteq LLP. Its audience will discover the eight key steps they need to take to maximize the value of their firm, and achieve personal wealth in the process. Keynote speaker Paul Collins, millionaire consultancy owner and managing director of Equiteq, said the current market is booming and there has never been a better time for owners of management consultancies to sell their businesses and make millions. Paul said “Around four mergers or acquisitions are taking place every week in the European consulting industry which is a phenomenal rate. There hasn’t been so much merger and acquisition activity in the industry since the dot com boom of the late 90s. Well run small to medium consulting businesses are in particular demand, increasingly from US organisations who are looking to expand in the UK and Europe. “This is great news for consulting entrepreneurs – it means there’s a fantastic opportunity for them to get a premium price for their firm and make their fortune – so long as they follow our eight key steps!” Attendees will learn about the vital elements to building a ‘saleable’ firm – and then the critical stages in the selling process. Paul, who sold his stake in the award winning management consultancy firm WCI in 2002 added “We’ll also cover how to build personal wealth, how the City values a consulting firm, why sales forecast accuracy is crucial, and the growing role of venture capitalists. Come along on the 29 June and find out how it can be done. Be warned - this seminar could be seriously important to your future wealth!” To book a place at the seminar, visit the Top Consultant website .
