Show Notes

After riding his bike up the side of a mountain, Toby's endorphins kicked in and he has proposed a great idea. You can learn more from listening to this podcast and we would welcome any contributions you might make.

M&A Integration is about keeping it simple but as Einstein says  "you've got to make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler" and it's this topic that Robert and Toby explore.

Then just as we thought we had simplicity nailed, Robert introduces SPAC's. What? I hear you say. Well according to Wikipedia,  A SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) is a company created solely to buy another firm and take it public — an alternative to a traditional IPO .  Robert aims at providing a brief overview but as always, we welcome further commentary from our listeners.

Lastly we invoke Les Hayman and choose three more 'Pieces of advice for managers'  This week's sagely offings are

  1. Be humble. Greatness. Doesn't have to be advertised.
  2. Never get angry. The minute that you do, you've lost
  3. Lead by example. But remember your people watch and see everything you do
