Business Transitioning Presentation at March Chamber Meeting!

This is a Chamber meeting you won’t want to miss, so mark your calendar for Wednesday, March 11th!

Headshot of Doug Roberts, MMEC

At the March 11th General Membership Meeting, the Choteau Chamber of Commerce is excited to present Doug Roberts from the Montana Manufacturing Extension Center and his presentation about business transitioning!

Doug has a passion for manufacturing and small business and has expertise in strategic planning, succession planning, business systems and too many more to list them all.

Doug’s presentation will help owners identify action steps to begin “de-risking” their businesses, increase value and improve their transition outcomes.

Transition readiness is “just” good business, and owners who commit to becoming more transition ready will enjoy greater financial success, better legacy outcomes, and increased personal fulfillment. Business owners will learn what transition readiness is, why it matters, and how to improve their personal and business outcomes.
