A message from IR Global MD, Thomas Wheeler:

Dear Attendees,

I look forward to seeing you all soon, at the IR Annual Conference in London.

I believe this event signifies a very important and exciting new chapter of the group’s development. 2015 has seen IR celebrate our 5th anniversary and it has been an opportunity for us to look back on some of our achievements and strategically assess our current position and where we are heading to.

In the past 5 years, IR has become both the fastest growing network in the professional services arena and also the largest
practice area-focused group. We have held some fantastic events all over the world, witnessed inter-group referrals increase significantly year on year and developed a strong
nucleus of leaders within the network who work alongside us to develop the various practice area groups. It is fair to say, no other network has had such an impact, in such a short space of time and this was indeed supported by our acceptance into the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 rankings this year.

I believe one of the main reasons for this rapid growth, has been our willingness to innovate, be reactive and take risks! We have not been content to be ‘just another network’ but determined to become a real, viable alternative for international businesses.
This event, we’ll take our biggest step yet by officially announcing our re-brand to IR Global and presenting the next stages of the group’s evolution.

The event title this year is ‘An Original Composition’, a concept built around classical music. Metaphorically, it takes many elements to create a piece of music or build a network, as the saying goes ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. In addition to this though, I believe the difference between a good or great piece of music / network is intangible and the emotion which it creates.

One of our goals during this event, is to share a new message and create such a feeling. Thus helping us together become the number one choice of any forward thinking, innovative business or individual.

See you soon.
Warmest regards,

Thomas Wheeler
