Gears & Gadgets April 28, 2016 — Valuation? 698 400 Opportunity Into Revenue

Minnesota Business magazine  recently recognized Marni Hockenberg  as a member of the (Real) Power 50.  Prominently mentioned in her recognition was the creation of  “Gears & Gadgets,” a networking event for Minnesota manufacturing executives.  The photo above is from the most recent G&G event on April 28, 2016.

As a Business Advisor for Resultants for Business, I’ve been pleased to participate for over 2 of the 4 years that this event has existed.  The discussion is always lively — before, during, and after the formal program.  Our October events features senior executives from companies that have won Minnesota manufacturing awards.  I’ve moderated that panel for two years and look forward to this October’s event.  Resultants for Business is a Platinum Sponsor of Gears & Gadgets.

In the photo above several of us are discussing whether the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal is good for Minnesota manufacturing.

The panel for the most recent event featured a valuation expert and four company CEO’s who commented on strategies and initiatives that had improved the valuation of their firms.  Thanks to Kirk Kleckner, Valuation USA, for organizing and preparing the panel.

The next Gears & Gadgets will be on July 19 — a purely social event with the theme of “Brews, Blues, and BBQ.”  For more information on their events, visit the Gears and Gadgets website.
