    IT & Business Leadership in Post-Acquisition Integration (Follows Student Prize Awards)

    BCS, Southampton Street, London
    Henry McNeill, Computerbright Limited
  • Some say '60% of acquisitions fail, based on any measure of success' (Deloitte 2010). Others say 'over 70% of M&A transactions leave value opportunities unexplored' (PwC 2013). With post-acquisition integration projects, you are grappling with many imponderables and unknowns, ranging from acquiring new and unfamiliar products and services through to integrating a like for like business.

    With over 20 years' experience in the business and technology integration space, Henry McNeill will provide insights on how to tilt the scales in your favour and move you into the upper quartile of success.

    About the speaker
    Henry McNeill graduated with a Computer Science degree in 1982 and has worked with IT and Data companies ever since. He formed Computerbright Ltd in 1989, initially as one of the first independent business analysts, leading to interim CIO, consultancy and non-executive director roles. Since the late 1990's, the majority of his time has been spent helping companies acquire and integrate technology businesses. Assignments have ranged from the acquisitions of small customer bases through to a mega merger of 30 companies. He has a passion for running workshops, bringing business and technology people together during the early stages of post-acquisition integration.
