Delegates from five regions gather in São Paulo for dynamic Latin American Conference
Member collaboration and networking were the main focus of the conference, giving participants time to review and reflect on their shared values.
Winning business together
The conference welcomed delegates and presentations from Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America, all of which joined in sharing expertise, discussing examples of member firms working together and highlighting opportunities for cross-region collaboration.
The agenda covered some of the key issues that all members and their clients are currently facing. IBM’s Blockchain Technical Leader, Carlos Rischioto, got delegates talking about how advancing technology is driving the profession, whilst Susan Hawkins, Founder and Director of SHP Training, prompted conversation on how international professional qualifications like ACCA may change what firms are looking for in new talent.
Building better businesses globally
The conference was proud to welcome Morison KSi’s newly-appointed CEO, Memoria Lewis, to her first engagement in the role, during which she led an engaging session which prompted firms to explore their shared values, and how they must be used to drive the association.
Outside of the conference room, the agenda provided delegates and companions with a range of opportunities to network and engage with fellow participants from around the world. The programme saw delegates enjoy dinner at Vento Haragano – described as Brazil’s best churrascaria – and visit a number of local highlights, taking in the spectacular view from Museu de Arte Contemporânea and embracing Brazil’s national sport at the Museu Do Futebol. To round off the event, participants were not afraid
to get their hands (a little) dirty and partake in some healthy competition as they took part in a high energy pizza-making activity.
Morison KSi would like to thank all speakers and panellists for sharing their insights and inspiring thought-provoking discussions. Particular thanks are due to all three of our host firms, KSI Brasil, M/Legate and Promissor Contabilidade for the excellent support and assistance in organising an unforgettable conference. Thanks, also, to all participants for taking time out of the office to attend and contribute to this successful event.
