Alliott Group CEO James Hickey comments: “The partners and owner managers attending our conference recognise that the world around them is changing at an unprecedented pace. They are ahead of other professional firms in their markets in understanding that the next few years will define them and that staying ahead of technology-driven change in the workplace is critical. It is good to see that so many of our members are travelling to Vancouver and it indicates that they value the contribution that the learning and development and cross-border collaborative opportunities offered by Alliott Group will make to future-proofing their businesses.”
