5:30pm - 7:00pm Program
Mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, divestitures and similar transactions are some of the biggest moves a company can make, but there are many requirements to executing a successful deal to move a company forward. Corporate directors, in particular, are well-positioned to help management think through all angles of a deal, and in today's fast-paced world, a director's ability to make quick, accurate assessments is critical.
Instinct and experience are important for these assessments, but the data-fueled nature of today's business environment means that directors have more information to work with than ever before—at every stage of the deals process. And while the data itself is critical, it's the story behind the data that really matters. Advanced business analytics tools give directors the ability to see deals with more clarity, and predictive analytics can help directors and organizations react to events before they happen.
Please join the NACD and PwC for a discussion on how predictive analytics can help bolster, confirm and progress your company's deals strategy. After discussing marketplace deal trends and the role of predictive analytics and data science in driving these trends, Jill Niland, PwC's Global Assurance New Products and Services Leader, will lead a panel of your corporate director peers, along with PwC Deals specialists, who will share insights on the role of a director in the deal decision-making process with PwC's deals predictions.Speakers Venue
