FLI NET Executive Board Meeting - London 2014

Date: 
Friday, 17 January, 2014

FLI NET Board kicked off the new year by gathering in London at Wragge & Co.'s offices.

Board members from the Netherlands, Angola, Germany, Lebanon, France, Spain, and Finland met at FLI NET UK Partner's offices to review FLI NET's performance in 2013 and set clear directions for the network for 2014.

Given the distance and time difference, the above members were joined via conference call by the partners from India, Republic of Korea, Japan, and Brazil.

During a full-day meeting, Executive Management team combed through various critical topics FLI NET should be direct its focus and energy. Among several points of discussion, following items of business were covered:

  • FLI NET Board Changes
  • Upcoming merger of FLI NET UK Partner - Wragge & Co. with Lawrence Graham
  • FLI NET 2013 Executive Annual Report
  • FLI NET Global Business Development Efforts
  • FLI NET Policies
  • FLI NET Practice Groups

In addition to FLI NET-internal discussions, two mega-consulting firms were invited to make formal presentations on a possible strategic direction project to catapult FLI to the next level. A third company was also invited to present a possible strategic alliance to share content.

The meetings were inspiring, to say the least.

FLI Brussels is grateful to each participating FLI NET Board Member for their time and commitment by joining the team in London.

FLI Brussels is also thankful to the hosts at Wragge & Co. for hosting the meetings at their beautiful facilities on Chancery Lane.
