And now my takeaway.

Early Monday. Preparing for a couple of events, this week.
One, today, with all countries adopting our new Content Marketing model. Key meeting, considering that content distribution success will depend on country adoption.
Second, the 8th Merger Integration Management Forum, (17-18 March, Amsterdam), the Conference I will attend at the end of this week. As I wrote in a previous post, it is my first non-marketing conference as a speaker. I will introduce a marketing subject (how to set up properly branding and communication strategy in post-acquisitions and how M&A performances can be affected by a poor marketing strategy) to a non-marketing audience.
My next conference as a speaker (8th Merger Integration Management Forum, 17-18 March, Amsterdam) is approaching and I am dedicating some time today for preparation. Also had a great call to understand the audience. Well, this time will be different: still a marketing-focused presentation, but different audience, different cut, different expectations.
In fact, it’s my first non-marketing conference. Where I will introduce a marketing subject (how to set up properly branding and communication strategy in post-acquisitions and how acquisition performances can be affected by a poor marketing strategy) to a non-marketing audience. I will need some good luck – and a good preparation. Conference site is here.

Agenda has been released and can be downloaded here. I’ll be on stage back with my very first (marketing) passion, presenting considerations and best practices about marketing for Mergers & Acquisitions/post-Integrations.
Interesting piece summarizing Global 2015 M&As, with very cool visuals. Short extract below.
This year, global mergers and acquisition volumes have surged to a new record level, with the total value of announced transactions climbing to $4.6tn, compared with $4.3tn eight years ago, according to Thomson Reuters data.
Wilhelm Schulz, head of M&A at Citigroup for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said it would be harder to replicate the level of activity seen in the US in 2015, after deal values rose 64 per cent year on year, to $2.3tn, according to Thomson Reuters data. However, he noted the Emea region remained well below its 2007 peak and was likely to see some growth.
