News & Events

Corporate Performance Group sponsors events and workshops to help Oklahoma and Arkansas business owners and leaders address specific challenges they face.  These events and workshops provide an opportunity for business leaders and owners to learn about solutions to their challenges and to exchange ideas with other business leaders and owners.

Upcoming Events and Workshops:



More than 50% of private company sales or liquidations are driven by unplanned events – including incapacity, death or other life events.  Studies have found that 75% or more of a business owner’s net worth is in their business – but 85% of small and mid-sized business owners do not have a succession or ownership transition plan in place.

Retiring is never easy – but it’s even more difficult when you own the company.  Even if you plan to run your business for another 10 years before you retire, you should start preparing for the day when you leave your business – either on a planned or unplanned basis.  In this workshop, you will learn what you should be doing now to ensure the ongoing success of your business and to achieve your personal and financial objectives when you are ready to sell or transition ownership of your business.

If you own a business and you are beginning to think about retirement, you should attend this workshop.
