I wanted to thank you for your participation in the workshop we presented on February 25, 2014. By all measures, it was a huge success, filling our largest conference room with business owners. Based on the evaluations, it was very well received by our audience.

The sections on "establishing base value, initiatives to increase value, project planning to improve value, and exit planning" were big attractions for our audience and the accompanying materials were in demand. That questions continued for half an hour after we concluded and audience ratings were in the ninetieth percetile speak for themselves.

Based on audience evaluations and follow up meetings I had (and am still having) with participants, the event was a great public relations vehicle for our firm and provided valuable information for the business owner/participants.

It was great presenting with you and I look forward to having additional opportunities to do so.

Dear Rick:

Two weeks ago, we gathered about 20 clients and prospects together for lunch to hear your presentation on increasing the value of their respective businesses. Your team • from Piper Group (Brent Freeman and yourself) was joined by John McCormick (Sussman Shank). Together you provided us with a fast•paced and highly informative overview that gave our guests a number of practical ideas and tools to take back to their offices.

As a bank we are committed to our clients’ success. One of the best ways I know to do this is to provide “value-added” services. Your seminar is at the top of our list.  One of our guests has this to say about your seminar “Thank you for the invitation to the seminar today, it was perhaps the best use of two hours I have experienced in years- full of practical advice we can begin to use immediately”.  Having served as the CEO two companies, I know how important getting good financial information can be. The methodology you apply to recasting the balance sheet and income statement for business valuation purposes is a great tool for "taking the noise out of the numbers". We welcome the opportunity to invite you back to meet with another group of cur clients and prospects. Our thanks to you and your team for investing the time and effort.

Regards,
Ty Pettit, VP - Business Development
