Chairman's Message - June 2019


The Heart of the Deal
By Jim Jeffries, Chairman of the M&A Leadership Council

People. People. People. When you consider mergers, acquisitions, divestments or any other major business transaction, your first thought should be People. Make no mistake, people still matter in M&A and can make or break deal outcomes.

From the due diligence which determines the financial and strategic fit of a contemplated deal, through the integration and operations cutover, people issues need to be fleshed out, considered and planned for as much or more than anything else. Therefore, the M&A Leadership Council has recently expanded the curriculum for The Art of M&A for HR Leaders.

The Art of M&A for HR Leaders brings a comprehensive look into the roles, responsibilities, tools and techniques that any person responsible for people must have or acquire for success in M&A. Join us September 10-12 in Boston at the beautiful Royal Sonesta hotel located on the Charles River. Find out why this training program is rated highest and most essential by our alumni and the HR community.
