Jayne's presentation at our Bank First "Lunch & Learn" event was excellent. Every business owner who attended found the session to be well worth their time to learn how to build value and prepare for their future exit.


Preparing to exit a business is a lengthy process. Jayne's engaging presentation made every owner in the room feel comfortable and well-informed while bringing valuable insights to owners looking to exit in the short or long term. 


I would highly recommend this session to all my business clients.

"As an economic development leader, I am always concerned about business retention and growth in our community. Succession and transition are critical issues as we find many business owners at the stage where they need to make departure plans but don’t know where to start. 


Jayne's compelling data, solutions, and options gave our business owners insight into the importance of engaging in the exit planning process sooner rather than later. We will be bringing her message to our business community again!"

Jayne McQuillan is passionate about educating and equipping business owners, advisors and community members on value creation and transition planning.
