The Davis Speakers Bureau
Educational, entertaining, and informative speakers are available from DMAG!
Ron Davis has been our “go to” guy for decades (and still is!), but now we are introducing Kelly Bond, another great speaker with a proven track record. Kelly just completed a webinar for Ken Kirschenbaum that attracted over seventy attendees and garnered enthusiastic reviews. Visit Ken Kirschenbaum's website to register and hear the webinar.
Her topic was “How to work with industry experts if you want to buy or sell.” She covered the steps to take when choosing a CPA, an industry attorney and a broker, both on the “buy and sell” side.
Kelly's other topics include:
- “So, you think you know the value of your company. Well think again.”
- “How to develop an Exit Strategy that works for you, your company and your family.”
- If those topics aren't ideal for your group right now, you can easily collaborate with Kelly to customize a message that addresses any of your' group M&A concerns.
Kelly Bond has been very active in national and state trade associationa. She has been on the ESA Membership and Scholarships Committees and was named the “Sara E. Jackson Memorial Person of the Year” in 2016.

Inside The Selling Process

I would do the same all over again if I ever started another business, only this time I would pay a lot more attention to some of the things that are important when you go to sell your business.” Click here for Doug's Big Idea.
