PR agency M&A: get the lowdown at PRWeek breakfast briefing

The seminar – Sector M&A: Scaling up and selling up – will feature a discussion with key players at Deloitte and Regester Larkin; Deloitte famously acquired the crisis and issues specialist comms agency last year.

In an interview-style session, former Regester Larkin CEO Andrew Griffin (pictured) and lead partner for resilience and crisis management at Deloitte, Rick Cudworth, will explain why they came together, how they found the process, and what the advantages are for clients.

There will also be panel discussions about industry M&A with senior PR sector figures. Topics will include: what makes a PR agency attractive to buyers; when to sell; and the impact (if any) of the current political climate and Brexit.

Tim Allan, group MD of Portland, has been confirmed for the panel, with more speakers set to be announced.

The morning briefing takes place at the Regent Street Cinema in Marylebone on 28 June.

Tickets cost £49 plus VAT for PRWeek subscribers, or £89 plus VAT for non-subscribers. Ticket numbers are limited, so attendees are advised to book early. Click here for details of how to book.
