As this is being written, registration has been closed at some 1500 participants in the ASA-AICPA Business Valuation Conference.  If that’s not evidence of a robust BV industry, nothing is.  Our goal is to bring you information and perspective that no one else does about the business of valuation.

Because getting good talent remains a top priority everywhere, we’ve focused this newsletter on that issue.  In the last of our series on training in the industry, we find that IBA training is designed from a slightly different philosophy than the other three.  Joan Garbo gives you some advice on wearing both a Coach and Manager hat at interview time.  We also hear from a pair of employers with experience in hiring “out-of-the-box”.  Developing leaders is never easy, so we’ve included some suggestions on the subject.
