Members received an extensive update on the coming quality review process and guidance on how to take part in webinars and practice groups. Circle leaders further drew the attention of members to the M&A Market Place, and BFD, a German firm specialised in information management, introduced their product. 

Participants shared views on the recent European Talent Meeting. It was reassuring to hear delegates welcomed this new engagement and expressed their future support. 

Members reelected Michael Grüne and Thomas Althoff as Central Circle Coordinators for the coming two years.

As well as all the formal meetings, there was plenty of time for members to catch up with one another over food, a glass of wine and a game of football.
