In conjunction with CASSI, Morgan McKinley recently hosted our Annual International Speaker Evening. This is an incredibly insightful and rewarding event for student Chartered Accountants. The aim of the evening is to give students an insight into how a move abroad can accelerate or improve their career.
As MC for the evening, it was a pleasure to introduce so many quality speakers to the eagerly awaiting student crowd. On the night, we had speakers who have experience working at Senior Management/Leadership level within large MNC’s and PLC’s such as Dixon Carphone, Glanbia, Mothercare, Intertrust and Flextronics to name a few.
The evening was filled with entertaining stories and insights and it’s safe to say all the attendees came away with some valuable ‘local’ knowledge for a multitude of locations across the globe. The consistent message from our speakers was how a move overseas can offer an accelerated career path and some fantastic experiences. One thing they did stress was that no matter where in the world they moved to, the magnetic draw of home was always there. The international experience allowed them to move home and into senior finance positions that would most definitely have taken longer to get had they stayed at home.
