Dear WSG Members and friends,
As the third quarter of 2015 concludes, I am honoured to be the WSG Chairman for 2015-2016 and look forward to the rest of my term.
I would first like to extend my sincere gratitude to Lowenstein Sandler LLP for hosting the 2015 Annual Meeting in New York City in September. With high attendance numbers of over 150 participants, a strong panel of speakers and engaging topics, WSG and Lowenstein together made it an unforgettable and highly successful event. The bar has been set for the 2016 WSG Annual Meeting in Cape Town.
In addition to the 2015 Annual Meeting, WSG held its annual IBA Networking Luncheon hosted by DORDA BRUGGER JORDIS in Vienna, Austria and the IFA Networking Cocktail hosted by Pacheco Coto in Basel, Switzerland. Both events were very successful and well attended. I thank the member sponsors for their dedication.
As we enter into the fourth quarter, I’d like to encourage you to actively engage in the network. Through purposeful participation, we are able to enhance the benefit that other members receive and we build the value of the brand overall. Whether it’s starting or joining a practice group, attending a meeting, joining discussion forums or seeking opportunities to build relationships, involvement is critical to the level of success we achieve as a network.
I am very grateful of the support and feedback we continue to receive, and I look forward to the coming year as Chairman.
