Asia Area Meeting 2015
SEOUL: The venue for the 2015 Asia Area Meeting. 12 member firms (80% attendance) were present in Seoul over the last weekend of August 2015.
The one and a half day of meetings was focussed on discussions on the ways and means, Asia members can collectively work together to unlock the value of MGI membership.
A big part of the meeting was dedicated to the MGI Worldwide and the Mint Alliance update. Clive spent some time on Day 1 briefing the participants what it means to be members of either organisations. He went through the application process and steps.
Members experienced Korean culture on the evening of Day 1 starting with a Korean dinner followed by a traditional Korean stage show – MISO hosted by Hanmi Accounting Corporation.
Day 2 was dedicated to panel discussions & break out sessions on building a successful referral market, how do we generate more business & how do we build a common platform for MGI Asia. Several ideas & suggestions were put forward for members implementation at their respective firm.
Part of Day 2 was spent on administrative matters such as updates by Imran on the International Committee, the Asia area update, Area Coordinating Committee member nominations and budget approval. The administrtaive matters were dealt with efficiently and soon the meeting came to a close. The next meeting will be held in Hanoi Vietnam in August 2016
