Thank you for your patience as we update the Isely Associates website. In the meantime, visit for more information about how clients typically draw on our support, or connect with me to introduce yourself.

We bring focus to what matters most when navigating mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate restructures and other disruptive business transactions. Our work positions organisations to quickly capture expected value, while avoiding costly collateral damage.

Research and experience confirm that early attention to business leader capability, deliberate culture management and effective communication can make the difference between delivering on expected M&A outcomes and falling short. We also know that the impact of people and culture issues is frequently underestimated or overlooked.

Isely Associates has particular expertise in preparing business leaders and HR teams to effectively support all stages of M&A transactions. Building organisation capability is our modus operandi.

What's happening in your organisation? If there's a merger or acquisition on the horizon, if you are currently working on a deal, or if you are sorting through the aftermath of past transactions, consider investing 45 minutes to take stock.

"Talking through our situation gave me
instant clarity about what to do next. It was
my best return ever from a $3.50 coffee
investment!"

"We thought we had things pretty well covered, but the review shed light on how little we had done to prepare our business leaders and functional teams for what was about to happen."
