The Impact of Talent on Deal Value

The deal landscape has changed dramatically during 2022. A sellers’ market supported by very low-cost capital is transitioning to a buyer-oriented market built on a more “traditional” capital environment.

Even with these dramatic changes, one truth prevails — a human capital/talent foundation is critical to delivering on your deal theses.

Join Kate Bravery, Global Advisory Solutions & Insights Leader at Mercer, on November 1, 2022, from 10 to 10:30 am EST, for an in-depth discussion with Devanshu Dhyani, Head of Strategy & Corporate Development at Marsh McLennan, and Jeff Black, Partner, Global and North America M&A Advisory Services Business Leader at Mercer, on how savvy deal-makers are delivering deal value by proactively bridging the gap between commercial strategy and the talent platform.

BRINKEvents provide live conversations on critical business issues designed to provide you with the most up-to-date thinking and insights. To learn about our next BRINKEvent, please register here!
