Chairman's Message - July 2019


Setting the Standard in M&A Training
By Jim Jeffries, Chairman of the M&A Leadership Council

For ten years, the M&A Leadership Council has collaborated with best-in-class professional services firms and M&A practitioners in creating material to benefit M&A professionals in every role, throughout every stage of the deal. The product of our efforts is a robust curriculum that sets the standard in M&A training. Our presenters teach best practices, including:

  • Rapid-fire decision-making
  • Focus on results (i.e., meeting the integration timeline, identifying and capturing synergies)
  • Comprehensive due diligence and planning
  • Establishing and communicating clear strategic direction
  • Ruthless prioritization and integration discipline
  • Strong internal and external communications
  • Capturing the moment for change
  • Disciplined management of cultural and people issues
  • “At a Glance” view into all actions, issues and the status of each M&A transaction

Does this sound like your current methodology for M&A success? It should be. Join us for down-to-earth M&A training from presenters with real-world experience. Learn to improve your current methodology and maximize deal value through best practices. Hit the ground running in 2020 by attending any of our training events this fall, beginning with The Art of M&A for HR LeadersSM in September. Like most of our programs, this one is almost sold out – register today!
