With the rise of videoconferencing software and systems, and everyone realizing that we might not (have to) go back to the previous levels of travelling, can you imagine doing an acquisition that has purely relied on videoconferencing interactions and no in-person meetings? Interested in your views.
This is a very interesting point to discuss Pablo. I am conscious that travelling – in particular in some countries – will not be easy neither during 2021, yet i hope deals will not stop just for that. Agree with you, maybe we will not “have to”, and as we seen since March Zoom has allowed us to work remotely even if we were used to our daily presence at the office. World is changing, and maybe we will see deal closing without any in-person interactions, yet i believe that the first impression and feelings you have when you meet someone in person – in particular when you need to decide about whether or not to acquire a business – are very hard to replace with a conference call. Happy to hear other views, and thanks for sharing this.
