Laurie Barkman Approved as National Vistage Speaker for CEO Forums

Vistage Worldwide New Speaker Announcement

Laurie Barkman, value creation and succession expert has been accepted as a new Vistage Worldwide Speaker to speak at CEO Forums across the country.

Vistage is the world’s largest executive coaching organization for small and midsize businesses. For more than 60 years Vistage has been helping CEOs, business owners and key executives solve their toughest challenges through a comprehensive approach to success.

Vistage groups meet once a month to review challenges and identify opportunities and work through operational issues and create strategies for sustainable growth. The network of Certified Vistage Speakers are thought leaders who inspire new ideas, strategies and perspectives, focusing on ways to create sustainable growth for these companies.

Laurie Barkman, Founder of SmallDotBig, and Value Creation Expert, has started as a Vistage Speaker.

Barkman’s strategic growth workshop, “Building the Value of Your Company,” is focused on building a sustainable company and helping participants discover potential blind spots. The result is a roadmap to make your business more valuable compared to industry peers and be able to thrive without you in the future.

One Vistage CEO Member said that, “Laurie’s enlightening and extremely relevant presentation helps people put a bow on the subject to quantify a business pathway forward regardless of where you are in your journey.”

Barkman does keynotes and workshops on topics around Creating Sustainable Value, Succession and Next Generation, and Innovation in Mature Companies.

Barkman produces a weekly podcast called “Succession Stories,” discussing thought leadership and best practices for next generation entrepreneurs and multi-generational businesses. The show features interviews with owners, entrepreneurs, family business leaders, and industry experts to provide listeners with insights to grow their businesses, develop transition strategies, and lead for the future.

SmallDotBig offers Value Builder System online assessments to help business owners determine what might be holding them back and create strategies to dramatically increase the value of their company.
