On the 1 December 2015 BKR International EMEA Region held its inaugural Future Leaders meeting in the Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel. This exciting new project was attended by 27 young BKR members from around the EMEA Region. All were hand-picked by their senior partners to attend and represent the future of their firms.
The morning was conducted by Martin Bissett, from The Upward Spiral Partnership Ltd, who covered:
– Becoming Social Architects.
– The Great Next Generation Challenges in Accounting.
– The 10 Greatest Requirements that Next Generation Accountants have of their Firms.
– The 7 Greatest Requirements that Firms have of their Next Generation Leadership.
In the afternoon Partners Nilesh Shah, Blick Rothenberg LLP, London, UK, Angelos Theodorou, Euroglobal SEE Audit Limited, Lefkosia, Cyprus and Ulrich Viefers, WWS Wirtz, Walter, Schmitz GmbH, Germany, gave a partners view.
Those attending went away with a much clearer idea of what is needed to be a future leader and had made some good contacts in fellow BKR member firms.
