Event Details

Michael Weyrich, a Director in the AlixPartners’ London office, will help us understand how restructuring a business looks like in reality. The topic, "Restructuring Unveiled: Real-Life Case from the Turnaround World of Private Equity", is very interesting, and Michael, thanks to his direct experience in cross-border turnarounds and corporate performance improvement, is ideally positioned to explain how it is like to deal with stressful situations, manage financial distress and push businesses out of dangerous waters. This is a great opportunity to meet other like-minded professionals and to get a better sense of what’s next, should the economy slow down dramatically.
