Facing the Challenge Together – UK Conference a Success

The Kreston UK Conference was held in Bristol on 23-25th April 2009.

Hosted by local member firm Biship Fleming, the conference entitled “Facing the Challenge Together” attracted over 60 Partners and senior managers from 11 member firms.

The Business Programme followed a traditional format commencing with a benchmarketing review of the performance of each of the firms over the past year. The review extended to cover projections for the coming year in the light of the UK recession. This was followed by Kreston Executive Director Jon Lisby’s review of the worldwide performance of Kreston International and a summary of strategy going forward.

The delegates divided into nine separate syndicate groups to consider a wide range of specific topics. These groups included Managing Partner; Marketing; Taxaton; IT; Technology; Financial Services; Practice Finance; Audit and Professional Practice. All syndicate groups reported back on numerous opportuities identified during the day and agreed to further share and exploit knowledge.

The Conference closed with an excellent dinner in a waterside restaurant.
