I wish I would have done a bit more research before the meeting to be better prepared for the information. It was good information but difficult to all absorb without much prior context.

Great presentation, though I have no clients with ESOP ...yet. ...but I really enjoyed this webinar because I've been wanting to understand ESOPs in more depth and the presenter did a great job of discussing the concepts.

My area of expertise is to help represent clients in tax issues and this would include advising a client of a potential helpful tool in tax planning. This overview was helpful in making me aware of how an ESOP generally works.

I enjoyed the insight into ESOPs as provided by Mr. DeDominicis ... an investment banker. I had always thought of ESOPs in terms of their exercise by an employee and its treatment on a Form 1040, rather than as both an employee incentive device and an equity financing mechanism

The presenter, Philip, communicated at my level and at a very good pace. I walked away from this class able to communicate at a cursory level of the subject. I also appreciate the information he gave to dispel common misbeliefs about ESOPS. Great class! Great presenter
