Virtual Conference Week 1 Round-Up

We’re coming to the end of the first week of our Virtual Conference and what a week it’s been!

We’ve already hosted 250+ members across the week and would like to thank all of our sponsors, attendees, and everyone else involved in making this such a successful event. 

On Monday, Samuel Roberts, Kate Cowley & Rachel Finch hosted a Speed Networking marketing session to share ideas and marketing strategies for 2023.

Tuesday’s theme was global mobility with a focus on the impact of a cross-border workforce. The sessions delved into the impacts of a cross-border workforce and the attending members highlighted their own experiences with things such as taxation rights, incentive programmes, and firm culture. 

On Wednesday we looked at opportunities and deals in 2023, discussing how IR Global members could collaborate to build teams for referrals and support each other to resolve any potential issues that may arise. There was a strong focus on sharing where members are attracting the most business from and which sectors and jurisdictions are thriving. 

Thursday dived into the world of blockchain and crypto with the first 2023 discussion from our brand-new crypto committee and working group. Discussions were held on the impact of the recent bankruptcies in the sector and what the rebound expectations are. Members also discussed regulation plans and how firms may have to adapt to these.

To close the week off we hosted our speed networking sessions on Friday, giving attendees the opportunity to meet, connect, and collaborate with fellow IR Global members both new and long standing to the group. The sessions are split into 6 minute chunks in a rotation allowing members to network one-on-one.
