Once again Scottish Business Insider and CMS are hosting a business breakfast focusing on the climate for deal making in north east Scotland on March 6th.

A guest speaker and expert panel will be participating in the event and topics up for discussion include:

  • What are the prospects for deals in the next 12 months?
  • Is this a good time to make acquisitions or sales in the energy industry?
  • How much should we consider the changing international environment in making deals?
  • Will we see more business owners seeking to make an exit?

The event is sure to attract the interests of deals professionals working both within the area and well beyond it.
