Secure Your Business’s Future: Attend These Two Sessions

Whether you are a current business owner or in line to succeed the owner, time is not on your side when planning a business transition strategy. Failing to plan for business succession is planning to fail, leaving everything you’ve worked for at risk and your loved ones in turmoil.

These two don’t-miss Conclave sessions will provide the facts you need in order to plan for a successful transition.

Listen, learn, and collaborate with jewelry professionals just like you who went through the good, the bad, and the ugly of family succession planning. It’s not too late! Whether you’re thinking about going out of business, working for your parents, or know a non-family member who wants to own or run your own company, this panel is for you!

Learn what questions to ask, who to talk to, and how to lean into those hard and important conversations. You will leave this panel with a plan—if that sounds good to you, then don’t miss it!
