Choate and Hall and Stewart, LLP
Two International Place, 35th Floor
Boston, Massachusetts

Wednesday June 5, 2013 – 8.00 am to 9.30 am

I will discuss the key playbooks you need to execute to scale your business. I will landscape the world of private companies and demonstrate the secret to building value for your business. Using relevant case studies, I’ll provide measured actions to help you transform your vision into a remarkable business. I will show you what rarity value looks like.

For your friends, this will explain who the hell I am – Ian is the author of Fulfilling the Potential of Your Business: Big Company Thinking for the Mighty Small Business, which won the Small Business Book Awards for Management in 2012. His blog, The Smith Report, focuses on ways to build business value. In 2010 he founded The Portfolio Partnership to help CEOs fulfill the potential of their businesses. As an ex-CFO, investment banker, venture capitalist and CEO, Mr. Smith has realized more than $400 million for shareholders over the past 25 years

Attendees will walk away with insight on building a compelling story for their business and an operational blueprint to make that story come alive. I will take as many questions as possible.

I will be joined by my business partner Martin Kelleher, a highly experienced COO/CFO who has helped many companies scale. Also attendees will meet senior members of Silicon Valley Bank and of course senior partners from our hosts at Choate and Hall and Stewart, LLP.
