The speakers will cover a broad range of subjects including how to set the right priorities, manage resistance to change and identify and make use of acquired talent.

It is important to be aware of the executive leadership’s priority from the beginning. This will facilitate program alignment during the process of integration.

Successful M&A integrations are dependent on a comprehensive understanding of the impact culture has on the organization and the capability of forming an integrated workforce which leverages the strengths and capabilities of each organization. A comprehensive integration plan should be created, and continuously updated to address any issues, from the day of readiness to closing synergies.
