Next Week Online Classes: Firm Valuations and Effective Documentation

What’s the Right Value for Your Firm?

Wednesday, October 6, 1:30-2:30 PM (Eastern)

Owning a privately held engineering company isn’t like owning stock in a publicly-traded company, e.g., Apple (AAPL) or Alphabet (GOOGL), where shares trade daily, and anyone with an internet connection can find the current price. But, without real-time market quotes, how are privately held businesses valued?

Matt Fultz of Matheson Financial Advisors will dive into the “black box,” discuss the three generally accepted valuation methods and how they are applied to value an engineering firm and explain why valuations differ for a company’s internal ownership transition compared to an acquisition by a third party.

The presenter will:

Identify commonly used methods for valuing an engineering business, including the asset, market, and income approaches 
Gain a better understanding of the underlying financial factors that impact firm value
Explore the link between firm financial performance and building shareholder value

Effective Documentation and Communication
Thursday, October 7, 1:30-2:30 PM (Eastern)

Most claims against A/E firms are not rooted in design error but rather in non-technical causes of loss, of which poor communications and documentation is a leading factor. 

Join Thomas Harkins and Robert Stanton of Willis Towers Watson will review the challenges and exposures associated with poor communication and documentation within the design and construction practice and share practical measures your firm can take to reduce your risk.

During this 60-minute session, you’ll also discuss:

Documentation and how it relates to overall lower claim activity
The types of communication prevalent in today’s work environment
How new and emerging technology has an impact on documentation and communication
