If you want practical, real
world help with issues in your family business, contact
Next Step Advisors. Next Step Advisors can assist families
in business to identify and resolve their problems before
they become unmanageable. David C. Bentall has the relevant
expertise and experience to help. He can assist you
with the most critical elements involved in managing
the succession of a business from one generation to
the next, including:
- Establishing a family council, and facilitating
regular family meetings.
- Creating your first strategic plan, or updating
your existing one.
- Recruiting a board of directors, which includes
competent, independent advisors.
All too often, families flounder
as they grapple with succession related issues because
they have not found an independent, knowledgeable family
business advisor who can help them navigate through
the myriad of issues they are facing. Newspaper headlines
have chronicled the many tragic failures that have occurred
when families have been unable to find amicable solutions
to their situations. This need not be the case…
there are answers, and Next Step Advisors can help you
Next Step Advisors has
worked in collaboration with the following organizations:
- The Business Families Centre at the
University of British Columbia
- The Family Business Consulting Group
in Atlanta, Georgia
- The Canadian Association of Family
- The Business Families Foundation
Most advisors to Family Business come
from either an academic background or a professional role
(legal, tax, accounting, etc.). In contrast, David has
experienced both the best and the worst family business
has to offer…firsthand!
David C. Bentall, the Founder of Next Step, is therefore
a unique resource. Not only has he lived and worked in
a family business for 20 years, he has experienced succession
personally three times, each from a radically different
perspective. His story is truly remarkable!
As a result, Mr. Bentall brings three decades of relevant
experience and a fresh, insightful approach to resolving
issues. If you'd like to know more, contact Next
