Thanks everyone who attended this discussion. It was a pleasure and honor to lead this.  I really enjoyed the conversation with the audience.  

Interested in bringing this talk to your community? Reach out to us and let’s discuss your needs.

  • Have you ever survived a merger or acquisition of an employer?
  • Wonder why acquiring or merging with another company seems so attractive?
  • Want to successfully buy or sell a business?

70% to 90% of mergers & acquisitions (M&A) fail. So why do companies spend more than $2 trillion worldwide on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) every year?

Selling or merging a business is not like selling a house. There are many obstacles to a successful business sale or merger. Much planning is needed to identify the obstacles faced by business owners, and overcome or minimize the effect of the obstacles.

We will identify the trends of the M&A market for 2018 and focus specifically on opportunities for middle market companies. We will discuss why mergers and acquisitions are so attractive to business owners, executives and investors, why middle market M&A matters, why it is important to ensure your company is prepared to succeed, and how to survive a merger or acquisition.

You will learn:

  • Trends and opportunities in Middle Market M&A for 2018
  • Why reducing M&A failure is critical
  • How to reduce M&A failure
  • How to make M&A deal synergies count


  • Executives, owners and senior managers of a business with a minimum annual revenue of $1M who want to successfully buy or sell a business in 2018.
