Strategy + Mergers and Acquisitions

I believe business is more than just finance and so I lecture, research and consult on the importance of strategy. In particular I focus upon the practices of strategy, which include strategy formulation, implementation and the role of strategy directors. I specialise in growth strategies, particularly international Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) where I use a multi-disciplinary approach to explain why deals succeed or fail.
