Alumni Summer Newsletter

Richard ReidDear Sir / Madam

It was lovely to see so many of you at the London Alumni Cocktail party on 20 June. Thank you for coming and for making the event so successful and I am only sorry I couldn't get round to speak to more of you. 

The Royal Exchange has become a good venue for these events and I am immensely grateful to Jane and her team for making everything happen seamlessly, including the never ending supply of food and of course keeping a watchful eye on the drinks situation! There are hundreds of photographs of this event together with past events held on our website. 

More events are planned for the autumn, details of which are set out below. We will keep you informed of any others planned in future newsletters andon the website. If you are organising a social event for your former KPMG colleagues and would like help with the planning and data please let us know.

The positive feedback, both at the event and from emails received on the new digital version of Connected 2013 has been very encouraging as the firm continues with its Digital First campaign. If you have not yet seen Connected the links to the latest magazine are below. 

Many congratulations to Michael Fowle who on 16 October 2013 will be installed (for a year) as Master of the Chartered Accountants Livery Company. He very much hopes that all the KPMG colleagues and former KPMG colleagues who are members of the Company will be able to join him at the Installation Dinner in Goldsmiths’ Hall. Michael was senior partner of London office and the South East Region from 1993-1998, having formerly been head of the UK audit practice and head of the global banking practice. 

I must also mention Richard Agutter who was elected as the Prime Warden of The Goldsmiths Livery from April this year. Richard was a senior partner in corporate finance for many years. 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me or Jane and may I take this opportunity to wish you a great break over the summer.

Kind regards
