Engaging, transferring skills and leaving successful legacies in distressed scenarios

The UK is currently in a recession that has been described by Mervyn King as “the worst financial crisis in history”, yet the turnaround market is stalled. One of the main roadblocks in the turnaround market is the inability of professionals to engage in distressed scenarios. Icebreaker developed this program from 2006 and launched in 2008 unanimous positive feedback from the seasoned executives that attended. Link to testimonials

The content is completely in line with business owners and other complex stakeholder’s interests – seamless respectful engagement. There is a broadening consensus within professional firms that pushing solutions and selling does not engage a distressed client, and a much more effective understanding of human nature with tools is required.  Icebreaker are interested to launch this program with the other professionals to strengthen the market position of this program and work together on this initiative in future, and share their working knowledge in this area for the joint benefit of the community, and turnaround community at large. link to event content
