The Corporate Development Forum - Europe is a full day event which brings together dealmakers and in-house corporate development teams from across Europe to engage in discussion on how the M&A environment has changed in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic and whether M&A processes are now being disrupted or aided by technological innovation.
Those present will discuss issues such as what is driving the surge in new deals, how are dealmakers strategically executing and integrating M&A deals and whether technology will continue to dominate in the years ahead.
Other key insights attendees will take away from the event include the shift to positive thinking around ESG, the importance of talent retention and the difficulty companies are facing attracting senior talent to their firms. Questions around the uptake of shareholder activism across Europe and the hesitant cross-border deal activity will also be raised.
