Lyon welcomes Morison KSi delegates

134 delegates and 31 companions met in Lyon, France, on 20-22 May 2018 for the annual Morison KSi European conference.

The conference agenda largely showcased Morison KSi’s newest initiatives and developments. These included the Contracting Out initiative led by Lieve Hendriks (Van Havermaet, Belgium), Media Group update by Esther Carder (Kingston Smith, UK) and regional updates from Ashvin Gokhool (Morison KSi Africa) and Matías Tejero (Morison KSi Latin America).

Three new member firms were introduced at the conference: Audit Firm Alliance (Ukraine), Pere Lopez Economistes (Andorra) and Cabinet THK (Tunisia). We also welcomed Cabinet Sartre (France), Kallen Accountants en Adviseurs (Netherlands) and the newest Morison KSi member firm, Soter & Partners (Romania).

François Sapy from Tribune de Lyon newspaper provided a first-hand insight into local business opportunities, and in his energetic keynote Florian Mueck demonstrated how persuasion can become a powerful tool in business communication.

The conference included the popular Common Interest Groups (CIGs). Thanks to Diane Paoletta (Marks Paneth, US), Jon Sutcliffe (Kingston Smith, UK), Jeff Singer (ILV SILVER, Spain) and Bernhard Madörin (artax Fide Consult, Switzerland) for leading these groups.

Besides the professional sessions, delegates and companions enjoyed the social programme of the conference, revolving around relaxed networking while experiencing the local culture.

Thank you to all delegates and speakers that attended and made this event a success! On behalf of Morison KSi and all member firms, we would also like to thank the host firm, Cofagest Conseils, and Claire Le Meur (CABEX), for their excellent support in organising this memorable conference.
