Building value for a successful succession

Good succession planning is about more than putting a workable transition plan in place, it’s also about building value in your business for the future. Without a proper plan, you can easily lose the opportunity to optimize the value of your business.

When it comes to optimizing the value of a small business, the VentureOne™ program from Canada Post can help. The program, which is free, enables small-business customers to save time and money on shipping and other products.

•  send documents and parcels within Canada, to the U.S. and around the world,

•  purchase multi-pack packaging products from Canada Post.
