M&A Next - VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM (Starting October 22, 2020)


Program Overview:

Led by Jamie Claire Kiser, Managing Principal, Zweig Group

Reserve your seat at the table as Zweig Group’s thought leaders share insights and valuable context gained from working with AEC firms of all sizes across the country and provide deep learning through an engaging experience focused on current and “next” practices in the world of AEC industry M&A. This fully virtual symposium is designed to provide M&A education and practical application through expert panel conversation and focused research and insights to connect leaders from across the country.

AEC firm leaders and partners with all levels of experience in M&A will benefit from this mix of education, practical application, and panels with seasoned experts. The format of this event is designed to start with Zweig Group’s data and expertise and take it down from the academic to the practical as we explore topics including COVID-related valuation impacts, negotiation and relationship building, best practice letters of intent, data considerations, and proactive integration strategies.
