      Establishing your Professional Purpose: An Interactive Event

      This interactive session will focus on beginning to define your individual purpose, connecting this purpose to your career, and sustaining energy and motivation into driving your purpose into impact on an organization and beyond.

      Keynote Speaker: Bruce N. Pfau, Ph.D.


      Dr. Bruce Pfau

      Bruce N. Pfau, Ph.D., KPMG’s Vice Chair of Human Resources and Communications 2004-2016, will discuss his influential Harvard Business Review case study demonstrating the powerful, positive effects of unleashing employees’ sense of higher purpose on workforce engagement, business performance and company brand. Today’s employees want more from work than what they can see in their paychecks or even in their career development; they have an enormous pent up appetite to elevate, re-frame and announce the higher purpose of their work. Providing employees with this opportunity, KPMG drove morale and retention to historic highs and advanced 38 ranks on FORTUNE’s Best Place to Work list, placing it #1 among its Big 4 competitors in workforce engagement and revenue growth two years in a row.

      In recent years, mega-mergers in the med-tech market have garnered most of the press. For most corporate leaders in the space however, the dynamics of the middle market are more meaningful. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of comprehensive information on these deals that has the ability to offer meaningful guidance to corporate leaders and investors. In this presentation we will present our research that explores 279 med-tech transactions over the past five years with an enterprise value of under $400 million. Specifically, we will look at:

      – Transaction multiples and trends
      – Most active buyers
      – M&A preparation and best practices
      – Emerging dynamics such as early / pre-revenue acquisitions

      Whether one is preparing for an imminent exit, or hoping to at some point in the future, this presentation should provide meaningful, data driven perspective on the M&A trends in the med-tech middle market that will help leaders and investors set expectations and position their business for success.
