TCii’s Terry Irwin addresses Monaco’s business leaders – November 2008
TCii Managing Director Terry Irwin was among the line-up of expert speakers addressing a London gathering of business people from Monaco on Thursday 13 November. The purpose of the event, which took place at the Millennium Hotel in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, was to enable Monegasque businesses to learn about setting up and developing operations in the UK.
Terry’s fellow speakers were Jonathan Riley and Vanessa de Froberville, Partner and Solicitor respectively from law firm LG; Andrew Jones, Senior Tax Consultant at Moore Stephens; and Nick Stephens, Senior Manager Inward Investment at HSBC.
The event was organised by the Chamber of Economic Development of Monaco (CDE), with support from the French-British Chamber of Commerce. The CDE’s mission is to develop Monaco’s economy by:
- promoting the image and the economy of Monaco throughout the world
- creating new business streams for Monegasque companies, and
- encouraging foreign companies to set up in the Principality.
The CDE has around 450 members from Monegasque businesses and professions of all types. Some 40 of them attended the London event to hear Terry’s presentation on “Doing business in the UK”.
“We are delighted that we were able to provide valuable insights and guidance to these delegates seeking new opportunities through expansion in the UK,” says Terry. “Naturally we are more than happy to put our expertise at the disposal of businesses pursuing continued economic health and sustainable growth, whether in the UK or abroad.”
