Why you should be part of a global network

The real question is “why shouldn’t you?”.

Why limit yourself to your surroundings when there could be a whole world of opportunities out there?  Everyone agrees that we should shop local and support your local town, businesses, and communities. But what happens when the requirements of your client/s go further than your jurisdiction?

If recent times have taught us anything, it’s that distance doesn’t need to equal disconnect. With the advancement of technology bridging those gaps, the world can literally be at your fingertips.

There is no denying that you cannot beat a personal, boutique service which really gets under the skin of a business or client to truly understand their requirements. However, when those requirements stretch further than your reach it can be the difference between retaining or losing a customer to have a network of global connections at the ready. This is where IR Global and our vast network of professionals can assist you – bringing different “locals” together.

Take for example a client in the USA looking to expand their business into Europe, but your business only operates and supports businesses in the USA. That client would be likely to look for either a firm with international capabilities or a different firm overseas to do business with. But what if you could offer them an alternative?

Being part of an active global network like IR Global allows you to refer this client to a range of known and trusted advisors in the relevant jurisdictions, showing your international reach and cementing your relationship with the client whilst retaining their business.

Our membership consists of the highest quality boutique and mid-sized firms who service the mid-market, and are focused on partner-led, personal service with extensive cross border experience. Over the last decade, our community has grown to over 1000 active members, across 155 jurisdictions worldwide.

The relationships and trust you build through such a network are key and form the foundation of your referrals. Through our various global events, and recently our online meetings, we provide the opportunity to meet, socialise and share opinions and expertise with your peers.

So, why should you be part of a global network? Because you could find business, support, and even possibly some friends you never knew were out there. Get in touch at info@irglobal.com to start a conversation about your membership.
