I recently attended the European Regional Conference of Geneva Group International (GGI) in Lausanne, Switzerland. GGI is an international association of accounting, consulting and law firms. It has members in over 150 countries.
Our Firm became a member of GGI in 2012 in order to gain access to firms outside the United States. These firms could assist our clients seeking to expand their foreign operation. We have been able to develop relationships with like-minded firms in Europe, Asia, Canada and Latin America.
My colleague, Jed Ang, was able to join me in Lausanne. Jed had recently completed his seventh busy season with the Firm. He also attended the GGI Asian Conference in Bangkok in December. Jed is going to be a key contributor as we expand our ties within GGI.
There were over 200 delegates in attendance in Lausanne. It was an excellent program consisting of international tax topics, practice management and topical workshops. There was also plenty of time to meet people and make new connections.
