Merger and Acquisition Consulting

Companies spend more than $2 trillion on acquisitions every year, yet the M&A failure rate is between 70% and 90%. Executives can dramatically increase their odds of success if they understand how to select targets, how much to pay for them, and whether and how to integrate them.

The most common reasons for making an acquisition include holding on to a premium position or cutting costs. But to realize those benefits, the acquirer needs to achieve economies of scale by absorbing the target’s resources into its operations. This is the key; Knowing how to effectively integrate if the make or break it on a merger or aquisition.

Another reason for an acquisition is to fundamentally change a company’s growth trajectory. In those deals, the acquirer uses the target’s business model as a platform for growth. Because the business models with the most transformative potential are often disruptive, they can be difficult to evaluate, and The aquiring BOD can often believe that such acquisitions are overpriced. In fact, however, those are the ones that can pay off spectacularly with the right structure.

Public Speaking and people dynamics


In life we quite often will say or hear "I can't do that".

All I hear in those words is: "I'm not willing to try". It's very easy to say "can't" and hope that others will do stuff for you. Unfortunately "can't" is a very dangerous word as it creates a limitation in what you can achieve. If you wait for others to do the work for you then you'll never learn how to do it yourself, you will never grow.

We show you how to challenge yourself with something that seems impossible. What you'll find is there is nothing that you cannot achieve as long as you are willing to keep trying. We show you how to push through the self-doubt, how to start suceeding.

Social Interactions

Have you ever seen someone walk into a room and suddenly everyone pays attention to them? What drew them to notice this person?

Some people just seem to possess an ease about them that projects success, and this indication of that success causes others want to meet them. Were they born that way? Or did they LEARN it?

You may not be a natural in a crowd, you may get nervous meeting new people and that is ok. We can teach you how to gain the bearing that shows success. It's not what you wear, it's not what you own, this social attraction can be achieved by anyone with the right tools.
