Show Me The Money

Insights into the World of a Hedge Fund Manager toelp You Grow Your Business

The money business moves fast and life in the shark tank is turbulent, but that’s the world venture capitalists, private equity players and hedge fund managers live in as they compete for deals, adding value to transactions so they can take profits and plow back earnings to make even more.

What can business owners from authors, consultants and speakers to retailers, manufacturers and service providers learn from the movers and shakers in the money business? Plenty. The people who provide capital to deals need those deals to perform optimally – or they face increased risk.

There are very specific strategies the best of breed use to enhance company value, improve cash flow, and boost sales – all while reducing exposure. These strategies are second nature to Wall Street types, but don’t often make it to Main Street. Until now.

Our guest speaker, Joel G. Block, is a long time veteran of the venture capital and hedge fund world who has been deep inside of hundreds of companies and has studied thousands more. He has invested in dozens and has run several. This is a guy who knows a few things about optimizing and adding value to businesses. And he is coming to Albuquerque to share some of what he knows with us.

Join us as Joel shares his strategies for building long-term business value by boosting sales, adding revenue streams, and creating enduring relationships with clients. What you learn from Joel about leadership, sales, strategy, and team building will enhance your business for a lifetime.

This is a program you don’t want to miss.
