Workplace Application:
Kevin Burke will share the lesser-known solutions to the business challenges that present during international transactions to protect your people, and therefore your profits 

The bottom line never leaves our peripheral vision — but transitioning teams might. Our people can be overshadowed by other concerns during mergers and acquisitions, and this is negative not only for our conscience, but also our pockets.  

Experts have identified speed and transparency during employee transfers as a major influence on profitability. In fact, divestitures completed within 12 months of announcement delivered higher total returns to shareholders than those that took up to five years. So, how can this be done while prioritizing people over profit?  

Kevin Burke, Director of M&A, Private Equity, and Venture Capital at Globalization Partners will share the lesser-known solutions to these business challenges.

Curious attendees who join this talk will learn about: 

  • The stumbling blocks to rapid and successful transactions 
  • What sellers and buyers need to be wary of during M&A 
  • How companies can make employee transfers smoother for all involved
