On 18th November, we were delighted to accept an invitation to the Chartered Accountants Connections Networking Event. It was nice to talk to the corporate world professionals and other not for profit organisations who attended the event. We took this opportunity to make connections and uphold our objectives. It was nice to connect with a few people who promised to work with us in the future.
