Successful Networking for Swiss Finance

  It has been a busy week for our Swiss Finance division this week, as we hosted two networking events - one in Geneva and one in Zurich! Our founder Paul Toms, Division Director Michelle Ewing and Associate Director John Bower were all in attendance, along with consultants Chris O'Brien and Emma Feneley. We enjoy every opportunity to meet with those in our network, which has been developed over 11+ years. It was wonderful to see some familiar faces, as well as meeting those who were attending for the first time, from the mid to senior finance market. Having a strong network is essential in today’s world of quickly evolving work environments. For those living in (or moving to) Switzerland and looking for a new opportunity they will find that, in the Swiss market particularly, networking is valued and can be greatly beneficial.   Thank you to all who came along and helped to make each of the events a success!!       ...
