You've worked hard to identify, hire, and retain a great team and to offer compelling products in a competitive market - only to have the COVID-19 pandemic threaten your profitability and the value of your company.  This session will cover specific financial and other steps that can be taken in order to navigate the current crisis and emerge on the other side of it with a business that has retained its value. Specifically, we will cover the following:

  • General economic backdrop of the pandemic
  • Safeguarding near-term profitability
  • Reducing the amount of working capital tied up on your business
  • Assessing the value of a business in a post-COVID environment
