Ethics in Planning for Exit and the Transaction


Program produced by XPX Atlanta.

A critical pillar in XPX Atlanta’s Vision – “Changing the Trajectory of Exit Planning in the Southeast” – is true collaboration among the advisory team members. This is not collaboration in a vacuum but designed to provide our clients with dramatically better advice than all of us providing guidance individually. Advisors may not consider collaborating with others as an ethical obligation, but it is just that – an ethical obligation to provide the best advice, not MY best advice. Join us and our guest speaker, Edward Queen, for an insightful, thought-provoking discussion – and roundtable exercise – on the ways ethics and collaboration intersect in today’s business world.
