There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
– The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli
Are transformational events on your roadmap?
Who knew that 500 years ago, a man from the city-state of Florence would have such insight about the implications of mergers, acquisitions, divestures and spin-offs? But then again, Florence was a leading financial capital at that time and the success of a merger, acquisition or divestiture can be driven as much by political reasons as economic ones.
Change is all around. Lead-IR can leverage its experience in crisis management, investor activism, M&A and divestiture communications as well as preparing for an IPO or spin-off to help you manage through the transformation process.
