The Art of the Deal: Maximising opportunities ahead

Join our next virtual event in our ongoing business series, where you will learn how to master the 'art of the deal'.

We are each only as good as our next deal, so what do we need to know to make it brilliant?

The next event in the IMAGE Virtual Business Series, in partnership with PwC is designed to level-up our deal making toolkit, with expertise from business leaders to equip us with the necessary knowledge and skills that deliver the inside edge.

Our panel features Stephen Boyle, Negotiation Consultant and Lecturer at UCD Michael Smurfit Business School, Claire McGee, Head of Education and Innovation Policy at IBEC, and Laura Gilbride, Deals Director, Corporate Finance, PwC.

Each panellist brings unique perspective and specialist insight to the discussion, which will be moderated, as always, by IMAGE Contributing Editor Melanie Morris.

What to Expect

In this content-rich virtual event, we’ll ask:

  • What is ‘Value Creation’ and how to maximise it
  • Deal Making as we look to 2023 – a SWOT analysis
  • Tips to prepare yourself, your teams and your business
  • The vital role of negotiation, and some key skills to learn
  • Living the process – it’s a marathon not a sprint… what you need to know
  • Succession and what happens next?

When: Tuesday, November 29 at 12:30pm

Where: From the comfort and safety of your own home or office
