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.

I very much enjoyed your presentation last night at the Portland Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers on how to find the street value of closely held companies for sale.
As a life member of the Business Valuation Committee, author of several books, and publisher of the Business Valuation Update newsletter, it is always interesting to hear the greatly varied perspectives of different successful merger and acquisition firms approaches to arriving at pricing for companies for which they are transacting.
Your presentation was not only informative, but also lively and very entertaining. I am sure that others would find it that way as well.

On behalf of our firm, I wish to thank you for your business valuation seminar on April 24. The materials were extraordinarily clear, concise and informative, as were your insightful remarks during your presentation. I have received a number of positive comments from other attendees at the seminar.
Having listened to valuation experts expound at length on what seemed to be impractical, difficult to apply theories, your creative and common-sense approach was like a breath of fresh air. Within two days of your seminar I was applying your methodology to a client's situation and have no doubt I will use your materials in the future.
We can whole-heartedly recommend your presentation to other professionals who are interested in an excellent "real world" model for valuing businesses.
Thanks for taking the time to speak to us. We look forward to working with you in the future.

We are writing to express our appreciation for your presentation to many of the lawyers in our office and a number of the local CPAs with whom we have had the pleasure of working over the years. Your presentation was both practical and very informative. The booklet which you prepared will serve as a very useful resource for all of us who were able to attend.
It was refreshing to hear your practical approach to the issue of business valuation. We believe that your straightforward analysis can be easily communicated to many of our clients. Thank you again for taking the time to make your presentation.
