Interesting moments from the podcast:

  • M&A increasing

    "Based on our [M&A] research, it shows 57% of survey respondents do indicate an increased appetite for M&A in the next 12-24 months, and that seems quite consistent with what we are hearing on the ground."
  • Sustainable investing

    “Investing in ESG and sustainability on the people side could create value to employees and multiple stakeholders to the organisation which could boost ESG performance and enables sustainable business growth.”
  • Aligning segments

    "We found that across all issues, 70% of POE buyers said that leadership alignment and culture alignment are the biggest detailers of a transaction"
