Programme outline

Flux is the new normal and organic growth is increasingly illusive. For many, the solution lies in consolidating fragmented sectors through mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity, and for some, it is simply, ‘stop - I want to get off’.

Kevin Uphill, Chairman of Avondale Corporate, will explain how the M&A arena has changed lately and will explore the art of buying and selling in 2023.

What is the role of the finance team in creating and realising shareholder value, and how can finance directors impact strategy more effectively?

Join this roundtable and find out:

  1. In today’s stagflation economy, M&A is the only true growth option.

  2. Real examples of how to increase and realise shareholder value at maximum value.

  3. Understand the art of buying and selling in 2023.

    Some of the most interesting people still don’t know who they are. Kevin is an entrepreneur, investor and advisor.

    He is also a published author and sought-after speaker, in particular on strategy since the publication of his book, ‘Creating Competitive Advantage in Dynamic Markets’. Not yet a best seller - but doing well!

    Kevin’s advisory work through Avondale is predominantly focused on mergers and acquisitions, having helped buy and sell over 300 companies, but he also advises on value creation strategy consulting, and increasingly business design and organisational change. Highly energetic and with exceptional know-how, his special skill is seeing around corners.

    He has won numerous awards including ‘Game Changer’ accolades. His knowledge is not the classic MBA & C suite style, but far more rooted in the real world of people and what works.

    Despite his extensive experience he remains straightforward, approachable and fun - albeit if a little over enthusiastic sometimes!

    His personal interests range from his flock of Shetland sheep, the odd half marathon and value investing. A highly respected enigma even to himself who may just have an idea that helps, and if you don’t ask you don’t get.
