In this episode we are joined by Christophe Gampelaere the Belgium Partner for Global PMI Partners and the group's specialist on Culture and Communications.
Christophe explains that culture is probably THE most important factor during M&A and companies that don't treat it seriously will suffer significant losses. Cultural differences can completely destroy the deal if not tackled early in pre-deal negotiations.
Christophe goes on the recommend that a solid understanding of how culture shows itself and how it impacts a business (negative and positive) is a something that all managers and business leaders should have in their skill set.
And to that effect, anyone who has not yet recognised culture management as a key skill set should at least consider the hands on training program that Christophe will lead on 24th and 25th March 2021. You can find details here Training Course details
