Chrysalis Corporate Planning from MC2

COVID-19 presents serious challenges for Irish businesses in all sectors and of all sizes. In an unprecedented social and commercial context, we don’t pretend to be able to predict the outcomes. However at MC2 we have built our reputation in helping our clients to achieve clarity in complex situations, a skill that has never been more relevant than right now.

We’re proud to introduce Chrysalis Corporate Planning from MC2, a bundled service offering for corporate clients and owner-managed businesses which brings together our specialist skills in banking, financial planning, commercial and property (restructure of leases) to help you plan your effective response.
