DFK will welcome a record number of delegates to its North American Annual Conference this year in Maui, HI.

The three-day event will be held from October 28 to November 1 at the Four Seasons Resort and will focus on a variety of key issues currently impacting the industry.

Maureen Dillmore, DFK/USA Executive Director, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting this year’s North American Annual Conference in Maui.

“Over the years, the event has helped nurture a whole host of industry leaders throughout North America.

“DFK is committed to developing talent throughout our member firms and we are sure that this year’s conference will be a springboard for the next generation of industry leaders.

“We have assembled a diverse range of speakers whose experience will provide delegates with valuable insight into the industry.”

Among the speakers is Bennett Thrasher Partner Gina Miller who will be giving a presentation on ISO planning.

Gina, who has over 20 years of accounting experience, leads Bennett Thrasher’s Value Acceleration and Exit Planning practice.

Maureen said: “It is great to have a speaker of Gina’s calibre presenting at the conference. Her knowledge and expertise on matters such as exit planning will enhance the event.”

The conference continues to go from strength to strength. Following the success of last year’s launch of the Champion’s program in St Louis, MO, this year’s conference in Hawaii will welcome the DFK Champions back for a chance to share best practice and build their relationships.

Maureen said: “The overarching aim of this year’s conference is to provide a platform where we can share the knowledge of all of our firms and exchange best practices.

“By the end of the event we hope that, as well as broadening their understanding of the industry, friendships and contacts will have been made across the whole North American region.”

There will also be a chance for delegates to let their hair down and find out if any of their colleagues have any skeletons in the closet at the conference’s Halloween Party!

Fancy dress is very much encouraged – the scarier the better – and attendees will also have the chance to go trick or treating.

Maureen added: “Networking and socialising is an important part of any conference and we want everyone who attends to enjoy themselves – and dress to impress!”
