Your Business-Your Future

Thursday, October 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm • Organized By Northeast Johnson County Chamber of Commerce
6847 Tomahawk Road, Mission Hills, KS 66208


John Degen, President of John Degen and Associates will be presenting on the topic of the importance to know the value of your business and how succession planning is truly about working on your business and designing your future. Come enjoy lunch and learn valuable information for your business or organization.

  • Will you design your succession plan, or will you let it go to someone else to plan? Will it transition the way you want it to?
  • What does tomorrow look like for your business if you weren’t here? Who is on first?  What is on second?  I don’t know who is on third…
  • Critical questions to understand your goals: “to whom”, “when”, “how much”, and “how”

Solid succession planning should be part of business owner’s plans from very early on.  It should be common communication as profits, sales and marketing is today’s conference rooms.

  • Give your business succession plan a check-up. Haven’t started one?  It is a known fact, owners will exit their business – either by design or by default. 

John Degen and Associates, LLC specialize in working with privately owned businesses that are in their growth state, leaning toward the maturity stage, or are looking down the path of figuring out how to exit their company.  We have worked with businesses who are closely held and/or family-owned for over 30+years.
