NAWBO Chicago - North Connects | NAWBO

Thursday, January 30, 2020 -
6:30pm to 8:00pm

Glenview Library 1930 Glenview Road Glenview, IL 60025, US

Join us for our panel discussion, “The 5 Things You Need to Know about Mergers and Acquisitions (But Were Afraid to Ask)."

Almost on a daily basis, we read about business segments or industries being disrupted or transformed, with multibillion-dollar companies and smaller organizations alike experiencing mergers, acquisitions and sales on a regular basis. And, despite the fact that 70-90% typically fail, M&A deals continue to be a popular growth strategy as businesses change, evolve, are handed down or sold. 

To uncover and address the consistent challenges of Mergers & Acquisitions, NAWBO Chicago North Connects will host a panel discussion of experts, each with practical experience in M&A. The NAWBO Chicago member panel will explore and discuss what you need to know about M&A deal dynamics from all perspectives. Panelists include:

Jennifer J. Fondrevay, Founder of Day1Ready, an M&A Consultancy.

Arlene Martin, SBA Specialist, Huntington Bank

Laura Morgan, Managing Partner, Morgan HR.

Sue Oldenburg, President, Oldenburg Accountants & Advisors.

Panel Moderator: Deb Dietz, CEO, SMB Value Partners, Inc.

What will you learn?

  • Critical steps that business owners should take to avoid losing momentum, money and talent in the early stages
  • Pre-planning required to help merging organizations ensure they optimize the human potential of the new organization
  • Recognizing and solving for the three aspects of “us vs. them” thinking that challenges the success of M&A or any business transformation

Please RSVP to Deb Dietz at ddietz@smbvaluepartners.com or through our Eventbrite page.
