Howard Weston Hosts Buying a Business Masterclass

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 | BUSINESS NEWS

Anyone looking to buy a business and wanting to access how a deal works from a seller’s perspective will get an opportunity to do so in London on May 10.

Seasoned business broker Howard Weston will be hosting a masterclass seminar in the City of London, enabling attendees to apply what they have learned to gain an advantage when buying a business.

Weston has brokered more than 250 deals over the last 18 years. At the seminar he will be sharing his expertise with participants. Whether they are considering embarking on their first ever business purchase or simply want to see dealmaking from a new perspective, attendees will benefit from Weston’s engaging masterclass in several ways.

Weston explains:
“As Managing Director of business brokers Lucas & Weston, I've been at the forefront of business sales for nearly two decades and have brokered many multi-million pound deals with private buyers and investors through to FTSE listed PLCs.
“I've packed all this research and hard-won knowledge into this seminar, and I'd like to share my experience and unique findings.”
Here’s just a few of the insights Weston will share with attendees:

  • Where to find the best businesses for sale
  • How the vendor thinks during a deal
  • How best to negotiate when there’s no guide price
  • How to deal with unrealistic valuations
  • How to track down unadvertised businesses for sale

    And, crucially: The three questions that business brokers rarely get asked, but could deliver a clear advantage to the buyer’s negotiating position.

    As well as sharing his unique insider’s perspective, Weston will use a range of case studies to provide attendees with genuine, inspiring stories of successful business purchases from the past twelve months.

    This rare chance to view a business sale from the seller’s perspective is available with a £200 discount at the moment. Anyone interested can click here for more information and tickets.
