Kexxel Group: Delegates learned the ABCs of mergers and acquisitions from the man who has successfully planned and closed deals for over 29 years

Event Review


Delegates across Kuala Lumpur and Dubai gathered in February on the 20th – 21st in Kuala Lumpur and 24th – 25th in Dubai to participate in the attend the Maximizing Value Through Mergers & Acquisitions Masterclass by Bill Snow, author of best-selling book,Mergers & Acquisitions For Dummies.

Delegates in both location sang high praises for Bill as his sessions were not only interactive but also informative and rich in content.

By the end of the two-day event, participants were able to understand in-depth knowledge about mergers and acquisitions from an investment buyer’s point of view.

It was a unanimous vote that Bill had the unique skill to engage his audience and keep them focused during his presentation, as he was lively and had a great sense of humour.


Take-a-ways from the attendees:

“Bill is very knowledgeable and knows how to entice his audience. The discussions as well as the Q&A session was the main strength of the event. The main takeaway from the course is learning how to manage the M&A process. I am not directly involved in the proses but now I can appreciate and understand how the actual M&A management team in my company deals with every deal and negotiation. I think it will be better for those who attend the course if they already have basic knowledge about M&A. The trainer is very experienced and knowledgeable. Overall, Kexxel Group was professional and the event was well organized.”

Nik Hishamuddin Mohamed – Head, President/CEO’s Office, Tenaga Nasional Berhad

“I learnt that we need to be flexible when partaking in negotiations. We also need to have personal touches, not be too rigid and understand our clients’ needs. As I am involved in acquiring and selling of companies, the course definitely serves its purpose. I would recommend the course to others as it is an eye opener for those who want to learn about the M&A process. Bill is very professional and experienced. He was able to share with us practical, real-life experiences. Kexxel Group’s staff present at the event were friendly and this is good as we cannot see something like this at other trainings.”
Debbie Cindy Munting – Associate Director, Corporate Development, Axiata Digital Services

“Bill is simply brilliant. He was like Master Yoda trying to explain things ala Russell Peters. The overall concept of M&A was well captured. I am impressed as the event was well structured. The main takeaway of the event was the overall structure of M&A. We learnt A to Z about M&A which is simply brilliant. I was able to gain a new perspective on things as I come from a legal background. This is because Bill shared his views based on his experiences as an investment banker. I now understand how people evaluate M&A transactions and are able to make sound decisions. I highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn about M&A or enhance their skills. Bill was a brilliant trainer as he opened our eyes to what M& A is all about. I love the fact that Kexxel was very structured and well organized. They were also persistent in their efforts to keep us aware of upcoming events. I was looking forward to attending the event before it even started.”
Azli Nordin – Head, Legal, Cyberview

“Bill has good M&A knowledge and is able to connect with the audience. His sessions were very interactive. I loved the fact that the materials provided were simple to understand.”

“The sessions were lively and informative. Bill kept us entertained. The examples he provided helped frame the content.”
Sakib Eltaff –Senior General Manager, Finance, Al-Futtaim Group

“The trainer was confident and generous in sharing his experiences. The most useful thing I learnt from the event was with regards to methods and steps in M&A which we need to follow in order to close a deal successfully.”
Mohammad Al-Dasouqi –Deputy CEO, Al-Nabil Food Products

“Bill has very good presentation skills. I found the legal aspects he covered in terms of acquisitions and new deal negotiations to be most useful to me.”
