The conference was opened by Eduardo Becher, former-managing partner of Becher y Asociados (Argentina’s member firm of BDO), who shared his 50 years’ experience of being a CEO in a leading international accounting firm.
An Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Forum formed a large part of the professional agenda and we were delighted to welcome a number of high-profile speakers: Mariano Meyer, the General Director of the Entrepreneurship Department of the Buenos Aires City Government; Silvia Torres Carbonell, Board Member of Global Entrepreneurship Monitor and Francisco Coronel, Co-Founder of NXTP Labs Accelerator.
The agenda also included a CEO update, member success stories and new member initiatives.
In addition to the conference programme, delegates enjoyed a fun social programme which included a networking afternoon exploring the city’s highlights and a gaucho experience visiting an Estancia - where delegates got the chance to experience the real Argentinean gaucho way of life. Delegates, companions and special guests celebrated S&A’s 30th anniversary in-style at a very special gala dinner.
MI would like to thank S&A for their excellent support and assistance with the organisation of the conference and to congratulate the firm on their 30 year anniversary!
