The 2 day conference was hosted by member firm Tanna Sree Kumar at the idyllic eco-chic Sadaani Safari Lodge. Discussions focused on how MI’s African member firms could leverage each others local connections, strengths and international clients for their mutual advantage. Paul Wan led a thought provoking session on the opportunities created by Chinese and Indian inward investment and Zaheeda Bashir shared her considerable insight of Best Practice Reviews.
The conference provided members with an excellent opportunity to network, whilst enjoying the beauty of the Indian Ocean, the open grass lands and mangroves of the East coast of Tanzania, and a rather close encounter with a hippopotamus!
The conference ended with delegates joining Tanna Sree Kumar’s partners, employees, clients and business contacts for a “magical” dinner event.
The region has achieved a good level of growth over the past 18 months, with a new member firm soon to be announced. Mauritius will host the 2012 Conference.
