Eric Gilboord

Eric Gilboord has worked with hundreds of Small and Medium-sized Business Owners over the past 26 years.

He is a management and business transition and transformation consultant, speaker, the author of several books, a columnist and the creator of hundreds of articles, seen in national newspapers and magazines, online and read regularly via his weekly emails.

His new book is 'Moving Forward' Get The Triple Effect - Sell your business for 3 times more and 3 times faster. Written specifically for Boomer Aged Business Owners. BABOs are going through a challenging time in their life. One of the biggest events they have to face today, is to sell or transition out of their company. Moving Forward is about both the emotional and practical struggles Owners are facing.

At the same time it serves to help the Owners family, Buyers and Trusted Advisers to better understand these challenges from the Sellers' perspective.

His first book 'Just Tell Me What To Do - Easy Marketing Tips for Small Business' was a best seller. The follow up updated Second Edition 'Just Tell Me More - Marketing Tips In 10 Minute Chunks' was released a few years ago. He also co-authored a book called Marketing Masters published by Profit Magazine.

Eric speaks to groups of Small and Medium-sized Business Owners on growing and preparing their businesses for sale and selling successfully. The goal is to increase the value of their company first, in order to sell on their terms and for more. He also speaks to Trusted Advisers to help them better understand Sellers.

You made a potentially anxiety-ridden experience an actual pleasure.

Anthony Florendo (Financial Planner Co-Host)

Thank you Eric. Your warm and candid stories obviously come from your genuine desire to connect with your clients and your years of taking the time to care for their businesses and their families. You discussed complex issues with ease by making them relatable from the point of view of someone who may be unsure of how to go about transitioning their business either to family or to a third party. Thank you for taking the time to educate us in a warm and humorous way. You made a potentially anxiety-ridden experience an actual pleasure.

You engaged the audience so well with personal allegories that resonated with each of them.

Jody (Financial Planner Co-Host)

This is just a note to follow-up on yesterday’s lunch and dinner events. You engaged the audience so well with personal allegories that resonated with each of them. And thank you for showing such nice solidarity with Maricel, Anthony and me. Much appreciated. I thought the “Safe Room” setting for our guests was particularly effective: we’ll set up another one soon.
