Welcome to the March 2017 edition of AI magazine, which features a superb array of features including accountancy, leadership skills, HR & training, intellectual property and law to name just a few.

We learn that inbound M&A investment into UK computer software companies has increased by 70% over a two-year period, according to a new global M&A report launched on 22nd March by Livingstone, the international mid-market M&A and Debt Advisory firm.

Other research from Deloitte shows that M&A activity in 2017 is likely to be driven by large corporates who are increasingly taking a ‘back to basics’ approach as evidenced in recent and upcoming demergers.

I hope you enjoy reading this packed edition.
