Morison KSi delegates leave their hearts in San Francisco
139 delegates and 32 companions met on 21-24 October for 3 days of networking, knowledge sharing and uncovering business opportunities.
The conference welcomed some high-profile professional speakers from the accountancy profession. Carl Peterson from the AICPA shared his wealth of experience in the keynote, “Go beyond: Preparing your firm for the future of the profession”. Allan Koltin (Koltin Consulting Group) enthusiastically presented on “Life cycles and evolutions of firms: How to thrive in a world of dynamic changes”. Allan has been named by Accounting Today as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People” in the accounting profession for 19 consecutive years.
Delegates also enjoyed member-led sessions including a presentation from Corey Fischer (Weinberg & Co), on publicly traded companies, a collaborative success story from representatives of Morison KSi’s German member firms — Christian Clingen (WTG), Doris Moraschi (bmi auditax GmbH), Holger Fessler (Kanzlei Wangler) and Simone Wick (DIERKES PARTNER) — and John Volk (Sensiba San Filippo LLP) spoke about “Silicon Valley insights”.
The conference also included the popular Common Interest Groups (CIGs) and a lively marketing and business development panel discussion. Thanks to all CIG leaders and presenters.
In addition to the professional sessions, delegates and companions enjoyed a varied networking programme, organised to dedicate time for delegates to network together to strengthen relationships and uncover business opportunities.
