The networking value is enormous. Commerce Dinners are about connecting people and overcoming challenges by having other brilliant people in the room.

Each Commerce Dinner has a set topic for intense discussion and mix personal with professional to dig below the surface. Participants discuss everything from a family struggle to the challenge of hiring a world class CFO. These intense conversations lead to deeper connections.

Oxford 7E Blueprint Day

Oxford Strategic Advisory’s 7E Blueprint Day is a collaborative workday to strategically and systematically grow the value of your business. Few entrepreneurs know the strategic levers that grow the value (and sale price) of their business. Fewer have an implementation plan. During your fully customized 7E Blueprint Day, we will discuss in detail the 7 Elements of a Valuable Business. We will analyze and scrutinize your business from the perspective of a buyer while identifying your weak points. As the day progresses, we will construct a blueprint and plan to shore up your weaknesses, capitalize on your hidden assets, and maximize the value of your most valuable asset. During the day, we will work intensively on:
-The Value Proposition
-Upstream and Downstream Partners
-Facilities, Equipment, and Intangibles
-Management Team & Employees
-Systems and Structure
-Data Availability
-Financial Performance

After a full day of lengthy and detailed discussions concerning these 7 Elements, we will collectively have a high-level comprehension of your company’s value. We will be able to quantitatively assess what is to be improved and begin building a detailed 12-18 month plan for increasing value and/or preparing for a sale. This plan will revolve around items that are measurable and backed by data.
