Invitation Link: http://guest.cvent.com/i.aspx?1Q,M3,7f61afb2-249a-4f10-8627-7cffe217c742

The New York Private Equity Network ("NYPEN") is pleased to invite you to a seminar on "Finding gold in the back-office: how to get the most out of operations and technology".

Have you wondered how much value there really is in back-office operations? Or whether there is an easy way to unlock it? Have your portfolio company's IT systems and infrastructure ever seemed like a black box?  Have they ever held up your ability to turn-around the company? 

Members of McKinsey's Private Equity practice and Business Technology Office will share best practices for capturing value from back-office functions in portfolio companies.  They will cover both operations (including support services, finance and HR) and technology (including IT application development and IT infrastructure), discussing how these levers fit within the overall context of portfolio value capture and how leading firms think about these levers throughout the lifecycle of the deal.

Details:*Date: Monday, November 10, 2008
*Time: 7:00-8:30 PM
*Location: McKinsey's New York office
  55 East 52nd Street, 21st Floor
(between Park & Madison Avenues)
