Nexia International (Nexia), the ninth largest global network of independent accounting and consulting firms, is today celebrating Nexia Day.
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural Nexia Day, member firms will explore the business benefits of Nexia’s values through the activities they deliver on the day.
Nexia’s proposition ‘Closer to you’ is underpinned by three values: ‘Enduring relationships’, ‘Business minded’ and ‘Being there for clients (Globally connected)’.
This year, Nexia’s Secretariat in London will focus on the value of being ‘Business minded’ by partnering with Youth Business International (YBI), a global network of independent non-profit initiatives operating in over 45 countries.
Nexia will be delivering a masterclass to YBI on the topic of ‘Managing a membership network and adding value’ to share experiences and best practices of running an effective network.
YBI aims to help young people to start and grow their own business and create employment with a combination of training, access to capital, mentoring and other business development services.
Some Nexia member firms around the world are partnering with YBI firms to jointly celebrate Nexia Day.
Other members will be taking the opportunity to bond more closely with their colleagues with a range of events. For example, a French member firm is having a staff picnic, a Russian member will be hosting a quiz, an Austrian member will be celebrating five years of Nexia membership with a summer party, and in Barcelona a firm is taking its staff geocaching.
Kevin Arnold, CEO of Nexia International says: “Nexia Day is a great way for everyone to get involved and celebrate the strengths of our network, wherever they are.”
“We decided to focus on our value of business-minded at the Secretariat as Nexia member firms are characterised by people who have an entrepreneurial spirit and who relate closely to the SME and owner-managed businesses they serve. We are delighted to be partnering with YBI and sharing our expertise for the benefit of young entrepreneurs around the world.”
