Business Valuations two-day workshop 

Designed to build the knowledge and skills of emerging business valuers or to assist those with more experience who want a refresher, this intermediate workshop will be offered again in Sydney on 13 and 14 March 2024.   

  • During this face-to-face interactive two-day workshop, facilitated by CA Business Valuation Specialists Simon Dalgarno and Katy Lawrence, participants take a deep dive into valuation theory as they work through a practical case study and network with other valuers.   
  • The case study involves both the Capitalisation of Future Maintainable Earnings (CFME) methodology and the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) methodology. Participants are provided with an Excel model which they populate throughout the workshop.
