By Pierre Briand, Managing Director, Equiteq Australia and New Zealand
This year’s Financial Review Client Choice Awards proved that the Australian and New Zealand professional services sector is going from strength to strength. At a glittering award ceremony held in Melbourne last night, professional services firms and practitioners were rewarded for the excellent quality and service they provide to their clients.
Pierre Briand, Managing Partner, Equiteq Australia & New Zealand, has been announced as a speaker at the Australia Microsoft Partner Conference 2016 which will take place from 5-8 September on the Gold Coast.
Microsoft Australia Partner firm owners will be able to attend two sessions: A presentation by Pierre on the topic of “When is the right time to sell your IT firm?” (Tuesday 6th Sept at 1.00pm), and an interactive workshop, conducted jointly with Sylvaine Masson, Director M&A Services, Equiteq Asia-Pacific, on “Ready, Steady, GO: Are you investor ready?” (Wednesday 7th at 10am).
With deal multiples remaining high and competition to acquire IT services firms with specialist capabilities strong; now is the perfect time for Microsoft Partners to hear first-hand from IT services M&A experts Equiteq, about who is buying, what they are looking for and how to get the maximum equity value for your firm.
