From 9 – 11th October 2016 Grant attended the IR Global annual conference in Amsterdam. See One of the highlights was a fascinating presentation from Jimmy Nelson, a world renowned photographer of indigenous cultures. The conference provided great opportunity to renew acquaintance with or meet leading legal, accounting and financial advisers throughout the world. It is apparent from discussions at the conference that the forces of change and disruption occurring in Australia are also occurring in most parts of the world. IR Global and its members appear well equipped to meet those challenges, through their international outlook. A pleasing outcome of the conference was the further development of the Asia-Pacific practice group, in respect of which Grant is a committee member. This practice group will facilitate greater connectivity and understanding between the various IR Global members throughout Asia-Pacific.
