The pandemic and its associated lockdowns have rapidly accelerated changes in education delivery and supply.


Interest and attention is now focused on the education industry more than ever and this brings both great opportunity and great challenges.


We are joined by Fox Williams for this session, who have considerable experience in advising businesses in both the education and technology industries and use their in-depth knowledge and wider networks to support their clients in exploring new opportunities as well as providing expert and practical advice.


This webinar will cover: 

  1. Getting your house in order: For those on the “sell” side, what can you do to prepare for an investment or sale?
  2. Deal structure: For those on the “buy” side, how might you go about structuring an acquisition?
  3. Post completion realities: Make sure you know who you are getting into bed with.
