TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Collins Barrow National is proud to host its global network, Baker Tilly International (BTI), in Toronto from October 26-30 for the 2018 World Conference. BTI is a leading global network of independent public accounting and business advisory firms.
Representing 125 firms and 33,600 staff worldwide, Baker Tilly International empowers its member firms to maintain their entrepreneurial culture and independently manage their own businesses, while accessing global resources to meet the ever-evolving needs and expectations of clients and talent.
The theme of this year's World Conference is Now, for tomorrow as the network looks to the future, while investing in the meaningful and relevant conversations currently affecting the industry. Over the course of the five-day conference representatives from around the world will engage in value-driven group meetings, workshops and forums, as well as share significant network announcements.
Collins Barrow National has been the Canadian representative of BTI since 2009. It is not only an actively participating member within the network via partnerships and referrals, but Collins Barrow professionals hold positions in key organizational committees and workings groups as well.
As a network of independent Canadian audit, tax and accounting firms itself, with 47 offices from coast-to-coast, Collins Barrow particularly understands the value of BTI membership and engagement.
"It will be a pleasure to welcome our international colleagues attending the World Conference in Canada this year," says Collins Barrow National chair, Grant Galbraith. "Baker Tilly International is a uniquely driven and strategic network that enhances our investment in innovation and client success at a global level. Being able to access and provide international reach to our clients, while maintaining our independent, entrepreneurial spirit is a key element of the distinctive value we create."
"We look forward to being hosted (and unveiling exciting network announcements) in a country as vibrant and diverse as Canada, and of course the home of one of our valued members, Collins Barrow," said Ted Verkade, CEO and President of Baker Tilly International. "Our network shares these same characteristics, via our members in 147 countries, all deeply invested in building connections and a professional services brand that is authentic and reflective of our shared values."
