In these 4 Discussions, the co-founders of Jump look at the subject of Business Valuation.
Given the strange and challenging year we have all been through in 2020, it might seem unusual to start afresh New Year with a topic about ‘How Valuable is my Business’. However, at Jump, we passionately believe that great leaders create great businesses. Each business will have certain points in its growth where it needs to take stock of where things are and where the business is going.
Does the mercurial 2020 mean that your business is more valuable or less valuable? Have the parameters to what makes your business valuable changed? Has the political and health challenges we all faced in 2020 had an effect on your thoughts about your business future?
We will be discussing these topics and other related ones as we discuss together every Wednesday in January at 11.00 for 45 minutes.
The discussions are:
Discussion 1 – Sharing Your New Years’ Resolution. 6th January at 11.00 am
As we begin a New Year with lots of new challenges, this first online discussion focuses on our plans for our own businesses in the year ahead.
The four Jump Founders will share a little about what lies ahead for us and how we are overcoming some of the situations we face.
It is a discussion where we hope you will share with your colleagues some of the things you hope to do in 2021. Can you share a few tips with others that you feel able to pass on? What have you learned in 2020 that you won’t do in 2021? What do you plan to do this year that will really help your business? Do you have a few ‘do’s and don’ts?’ Please join us to tell us what 2021 will look like for you, ‘warts and all’. We want to celebrate success and help each other be the best that we can be in this coming year.
Online discussion 2 – 2. What are the 10 Tangible Assets In My Business as I Begin 2021? 13th January at 11.00 am
So many organisations had their plans changed by the events of 2020. Or did they? Did the pandemic and Brexit discussion really affect the valuation of your business? If so, in what way?
In this online discussion, we look together at the 10 most important tangible assets of what makes up your business valuation. It doesn’t matter if you are not planning on any form of event or exit in the future. There are still certain factors that, as a business leader, you should be aware of as you continue to scale up your business this coming year. Some of you may be scaling back up for what you have lost in 2020. Some of you may be accelerating away building on a strong 2020? Others may be caught thinking ‘what do I focus on?’
This online discussion we focus on 10 takeaways of the tangible things that matter for your business to be more valuable at the end of the year than at the beginning.
Online Discussion 3 – 3. What are the 10 Intangible Assets In My Business as I Begin 2021? 20th January at 11.00 am
We have looked at the plans you have for your business in 2021 and at the 10 tangible assets that will make a difference in this coming year. In this online discussion, the Jump Founders look at something that many leaders do not consider. What are the 10 Intangible Assets that make your business more valuable in the 12 months ahead? How important really is your brand? Does your network matter? Do your contracts matter when it comes to the valuation of your business?
They look at 10 important assets that you cannot touch or feel! Things that you may not have thought about which have a real impact and that help to create long-term value.
You will come away from the discussion with a list of takeaways that you can put into your business in the months ahead.
Online Discussion 4 – 4. What are key levers I need to pull to push up by Businesses Value this year? 27th January at 11.00 am
Our final online discussion will focus on How To Value Your Business. We will be joined by Richard Brady of Fairmountian from the world of Corporate Finance with particular strengths in helping business owners understand what buyers look for when assessing your business.
Ricard and the Jump Founders discuss whether you feel you are wanting to plan your business exit or not. They answer such questions as ‘does it really matter how much my business is worth if I am not intending to sell it?’. Or, ‘my business is thriving; I am confident I will get the price I need.’ It really does matter how you run your business in 2021 because we know that if you are five percent off at the start of this year, you could be fifty percent off by the end of it.
This discussion will highlight the areas that companies and their leaders should consider over the next 12 months into a three-year horizon to help ensure that value is increased, risks are minimised and business performance is optimised.
