Get your end game in shape with deep dives and Q&A into key Buyer and Seller topics.

Session 5 (Buyers & Sellers): "Culture at the Heart of Success Post-Merger"


WHY ATTEND?

It’s estimated that 2/3 of all M&A deals fail to deliver the expected value due to culture clashing. Join our M&A Masterclass Session 5 for insights and suggestions on proactively planning the post-merger integration process with an eye on cultural friction to avoid doing damage control after the fact!
