Approximately 90 members from some of the EMEA region's leading independent accounting and law firms will be in Prague from 9-11 May for Alliott Group's 2018 Europe, Middle East & Africa Regional Conference

Themed ‘Building a Future-Proof Professional Firm’, the conference, the first in a series of conferences in different world regions, brings Alliott Group members together with some of Europe's most respected speakers and consultants to the professions and the business world. 

Speakers including Doug Dvorak, Richard Stupple (Boxchange), William Johnson (Openside), Heather Townsend and Stephen Newton (Meridian West) will provide members with powerful insights into a fast-changing professional services market and into the key business trends which are set to affect their clients within the next 1-5 years.

CEO of Alliott Group, James Hickey comments: "Our carefully selected speakers will ensure that members return home with a greater understanding of how to future-proof their firms and how to establish a more visible employer brand that ensures that their firms will be able to compete in the future for the brightest, most talented people from their local workforces. Our theme builds on the successful conference we held in Arizona in January and will go on the road again in June to Las Vegas and in August to Vancouver."

Business improvement topics at the conference include how to become the ‘go-to’ firm in a local market, how to attract and retain the best people and how to develop the inner sales leader and motivator within.

The conference also provides opportunities for networking and information exchange for members of Alliott Group’s special interest groups, specifically International Tax, VAT & Indirect Tax, Legal, M&A, Global Mobility and Private Wealth & Estate Management.

During the conference, a separate international tax training session led by the IBFD, will also provide education related to future-proofing international tax structures in the post-BEPS era, transfer pricing developments and the latest progress in implementing measures to prevent base erosion and profit sharing by global corporations. 

Further conference sessions on the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and on the impact of U.S. tax reform on foreign nationals and businesses, will help to ensure that member firms stay ahead of the game and add greater value to their clients' personal and commercial business interests. 

Members can still register for the conference but time is running out.
