Meet Leigh Riley
Her career-long focus on winning the best possible personal and financial results for her clients has earned Leigh praise from clients and colleagues alike. Engaged as a consultant by one of Australia’s BIG Four Banks to leverage her highly specialised knowledge and skills to develop their advisers and assist their clients, Leigh has an uncanny ability to guide SMEs (small to medium enterprises) through the minefield of business succession planning and processes.
Call her a business succession expert, a published author and now the author of a highly acclaimed business exit book, Leigh Riley brings real world experience and solutions to the issues facing business owners today.
Leigh earned her Masters Degree In Business from USC and has honed her knowledge and skills over twenty two years of dedicated service to her clients and their financial well being. Her passion for succession planning was fanned into flame by a specific client dilemma that ignited in Leigh a determined focus on ensuring the best possible business exit outcome for her clients. You can read about that business succession problem in the case study section on the blog.
Purpose Of this Site
This site is provided by Leigh as an educational resource for small to medium business owners who want to not only leave a legacy when they exit their business, but who also want to ensure the lifestyle that their years of effort have earned them. Far too many business owners do not reap the rewards they deserve in terms of freedom and financial return, as a result of failing to implement succession strategies with the end in mind.
On the blog section of this site you will find tips, strategies, scenarios and case studies to guide you safely and profitably through the business succession maze. Make sure you always get the latest post when you register for automatic updates by introducing yourself using the forms on the right.
Today Leigh is an industry leader as the founding owner of The Exit Experts and The GWYBnasium (pronounced gwib-nasium) … to Work Out Your Business. The Exit Experts was built on the back of JLR Partners, a Certified Practising Accounting firm that Leigh previously established and co-owned. The Exit Experts is unique – the leading Australian consultancy firm specialising in comprehensive business succession planning solutions for small to medium enterprises (SMEs).
As a published author of three books and many business magazine articles, Leigh is also an experienced speaker, radio presenter, and facilitator of financial education.
