Welcome to the last issue of IMPACT for 2021! In this issue, we focus on how to retain your top talent, how to navigate the ’emotional minefields’ of mergers & acquisitions, and what we can learn from a philharmonic orchestra and its conductor.

Janet Yellen – first woman US Treasury Secretary – a leader with impact

We were honoured, and a bit awestruck too, to be part of this line-up of keynote speakers at the Institute for Supply Management’s global conference in Texas a couple of years ago.
