Acknowledgments – How to be a Better Deal-Closer


A sincere “Thank You” to my wife, Margaret, and colleagues, Jeremy Balius, Celia Jordaan, and Matt Nile, for taking the time to review my original e-book Deal-making for Corporate Growth—and for being brutally honest in the process. Also, many thanks to Brian O’Kane of for believing in this project at the very start in December 2015.

I would also like to thank Jeff and Mindi Caselden for their enduring patience in helping me develop the e-learning tools, and particularly to Robbie Caffrey, Deva Naidu, Sean Melly, Howard Block, Dermot Mannion, Kingsley Aikins, and Gill Carrie, for building with me.
