NEW FOR 2009 - Unlimited listeners for CPE credit at no charge!
Why you should attend:
Lawyers, accountants, engineers, architects, dentists, chiropractors, physicians…The world of professional practices is expansive and varied, presenting numerous challenges to the process of business appraisal. How does an appraiser arrive at the proper value when analyzing a company whose product is intangible and whose marketplace is determined by much more than supply and demand? How does an appraiser distinguish between personal and professional goodwill, and what is the value of customer relationships in a professional practice?
On April 2, Kevin Yeanoplos, Ron Seigneur, and moderator Stuart Weiss will tackle these and other questions in their teleconference “Valuing Professional Practices”. Covering all the problem areas professional practices produce in the valuation process, Kevin, Ron, and Stuart will present what ever appraiser needs to know.
With "Valuing Professional Practices", BVR is launching an ongoing series of teleconferences focused on the valuation of specific industries, businesses, and business models, called the Industry Spotlight Series. With each new edition of the series, BV thought leaders will guide listeners through the characteristics of the target industry and how to deal with the complications they present to the appraisal process. The unique, hands-on knowledge gained from BV experts who specialize in target industry will prepare listeners for their next engagement.
Next Industry Spotlight Series Teleconference: Valuing Dental Practices, May 14.
