MGI Worldwide Adopts Forward-Thinking Approach to Leadership with NEW Shadow Board Bringing Together Diverse Group of Younger Members
The MGI Worldwide Shadow International Committee has been born and it’s the first of its kind!
In a new and extremely exciting move for MGI Worldwide, the Shadow International Committee (Shadow IC) is an innovative addition to the organisation, aimed at incorporating the perspectives of the next generation of talent into the decision-making process. There are two key benefits; helping prepare MGI Worldwide for tomorrow; and helping shape it for our successors.
Benefits of involving younger voices
The idea was initially introduced within the MGI Worldwide Executive Committee (EC) after a successful European Talent Meeting in Brussels this year.
By harnessing the ideas and viewpoints of future talent, MGI Worldwide not only retains its strong, current International Committee, but also gains a fresh perspective and a new approach to help inform its thinking.
MGI Worldwide incoming Chairman, Lazlo Killik sees this as an opportunity to harness the energy and ideas of future leaders. He says,
Fresh perspectives, New ways of thinking
Shadow boards, such as the Shadow IC, are an excellent way for global networks and associations like MGI Worldwide to engage future leaders from member firms and leverage their insights to diversify perspectives. It’s a way to help the organisation remain relevant for future generations and is in line with forward-thinking trends that span many industries. As MGI Worldwide’s outgoing Chairman Roger Isaacs has said,
“If Gucci can do it, so can MGI Worldwide!”
How will the Shadow IC operate?
The Shadow IC will operate virtually and meet prior to each International Committee meeting. They will work through an agenda with the CEO and Company Secretary, form their own opinions, and have a representative physically attend the IC meeting to share the Shadow IC’s views. This representative will then report back to the Shadow IC about the IC meeting itself.
Meet our New Shadow Iinternational Committee
Please join MGI Worldwide in welcoming the 8 founding members of the Shadow International Committee, each representing one of MGI Worldwide’s regions. These members come from diverse professional backgrounds and are expected to bring unique insights to the organisation.
A successful first meeting
MGI Worldwide held its first Shadow IC meeting a couple of weeks ahead of the International Committee meeting in Bangkok last month. This initial meeting showcased the benefits of engaging younger, diverse voices, with new and different ways of thinking that promise to bring value to MGI Worldwide and its members.
MGI Worldwide is a significant global accounting network with thousands of professionals, accountants, and tax experts in over 100 countries and nearly 460 locations. This move represents a forward-thinking approach to leadership and decision-making within the organisation.
