JM Partners Corporate Finance was among the 40 global business advisory firms attending IAPA’s EMEA and Asia Pacific joint regional conference held in Dubai, 17-19 March at the Ritz Carlton DIFC Hotel. JM Partners Corporate Finance is a member of IAPA, a top 10 international association of independent accounting and business advisory firms with over 190 member firms in some 70 countries.
Jan van Wijngaarden, partner at JM Partners Corporate Finance said, “This was a wonderful opportunity for me to reconnect with my global colleagues as well as meet new faces from several countries where JM Partners Corporate Finance expects to expand its business. Networking with over 55 members from 26 countries allows JM Partners Corporate Finance to cement existing relationships and develop new cross border connections to ensure we have the necessary contacts throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and beyond to support our clients. It is very important for us to meet our trusted colleagues face to face and this is what the IAPA conference enables us to do.
The valuable knowledge sharing and interactive discussions that the event offers both broaden and strengthen our working relationships with our global members. They additionally enable us to learn from each other through ‘Best Practice’ and ‘Technical’ Forums, refreshing our knowledge and inspiring us to innovate, find solutions and explore additional benefits for our clients. Recruitment for IAPA in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions has been strong this year, and I am delighted to be part of this evolving association.”
Member led presentations at the event included ‘The future of IAPA’ by Vice-Chairman Martin Clapson, offering insight into how IAPA will develop and grow over the next 12 months, incorporating feedback from the recent Members’ Survey. A fascinating insight into ‘Doing Business in Dubai’ was given by Vipul Kothari, IAPA’s member firm in Dubai and Uday Gandhi, from India delivered an engaging presentation on ‘Recent trends in fraud and detection techniques’. As well as the usual Tax and Audit Forums, IAPA was delighted to welcome Martin Bissett from The Upward Spiral Partnership to talk on ‘The Secrets of superior accounting firms’ who gave delegates plenty of material to think about and implement when returning back to their firms.
As always, appreciating the country the conference is located in is important to IAPA, and the event included a wonderful social programme showcasing Arabian culture.
