Rising Stars

The next generation of leaders in the global professional services community.

Boutique and medium sized professional services firms are experiencing many of the same challenges with regard to retaining their best individuals. One of the key issues, is the ability to compete with larger international firms in providing personal & career development opportunities. 

To combat this, we have developed the IR Rising Stars Programme, which provides the next generation of leaders in your firm the opportunity to get involved in cross border work, learn more about doing business in other countries and benefit from being able to travel, attend events and start growing their own network.
