Build, Sell, Retire
Build, sell, retire
This event, Build, sell, retire took place on March 10th 2021. We’d like to thank the speakers and the attendees. If you have any questions about the content or for any of the speakers please contact [email protected].
We were joined by the fantastic Chris Averill from 2Y3X, CTI founder Nick Rhind and Jo Evans from Lewis Silkin, who shared their stories and revealed the secrets to successful selling experiences.
Global entrepreneur and pilot Chris Averill has 24 years of experience in innovative businesses with customer experience at their core. He grew and sold his company triumphantly in 2016 and knows both how tough the selling journey can be – and how rewarding it is at the finish line. So now he’s guiding other business owners along that very bumpy road to acquisition.
Chris has also documented his experience in his brand new book, Build Sell Retire, which has been named the ‘blueprint every business owner should read’. In this session, he’ll share what he would have done differently when he sold his business, so you can get there faster, with fewer hiccups along the way!
Since CTI Digital was established in 2003, Nick Rhind has been building a network of leading digital agencies with over 200 specialists across the UK and Europe. As CEO, he’s achieved this growth by investing in talented individuals, advancing technology and clients’ visions.
“I am still buzzing with ideas. They assembled a thoroughbred panel of specialists who have ‘been there and done it’ and shared lots of invaluable insights for us all to implement in our respective businesses.”
