HURST hosts PrimeGlobal's EMEA Business Leadership conference
We have been thrilled to welcome 150 delegates from 11 countries to Manchester for PrimeGlobal’s 2022 Business Leadership Forum for the EMEA region.
“PrimeGlobal is integral to our proposition as we cement ourselves as the go-to independent firm for internationally trading businesses. It was a pleasure to host so many friends and colleagues at the largest post-Covid PrimeGlobal event so far.”
It is a major event in the PrimeGlobal calendar and it took place over three days, attracting accountants and business advisers from 34 member firms in countries including Ireland, France, Jersey, the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as from across the UK.
We were proud to be the host for the forum as a member of PrimeGlobal, a worldwide association of independent accounting and business advisory firms.
Among the key topics covered were staff retention and talent development, future trends in the industry, the accountancy practice of the future, socially responsible business strategies, the economic outlook, and collaborative working across the PrimeGlobal network.
Speakers included Thierry Delvaux, PrimeGlobal’s executive director for the EMEA region, PrimeGlobal chief executive Stephen Heathcote and Alex Brandreth, chief investment officer at Manchester-based Luna Investment Management.
Stephen said: ‘I’m delighted that our member firms from across Europe met in person in Manchester this week.
“Manchester is so well-connected and has some of the best conference, dining, entertainment and hotel facilities in the world.
“Businesses look to our firms to be trusted advisers providing the most relevant and up-to-date support.
“As the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester was the perfect location to come together to share ideas and innovate so we remain future ready.
“It really is the top location to hold a conference and we were delighted to have the opportunity to enjoy the best of Manchester.”
