This week KPMG hosted its seventh annual ‘eSummit in Gibraltar’ on 23 March ( Sunborn Hotel). As the event organiser, KPMG would host a Gibraltar Brexit ‘current state of play update.
Opening the eSummit, the Hon. Albert Isola of the Government of Gibraltar, detailed: “Since Brexit last June, our growth figures have actually increased in both the eGaming and Financial Services sectors. We have been working closely with the UK government to look for the benefits within the challenges we face, including maintaining fluidity at the frontier. We are engaged in a healthy, constructive and very positive view and vision for the future of Gibraltar.”
Further KPMG eSummit agenda focused on industry seld-regulating practices, European regulation, new market entry, stakeholder compliance, risk management and future technology impacts. The international auditor would detail that 300 delegates and 40 keynote speakers and experts from the world of eBusiness had taken part in its eSummit in Gibraltar
Micky Swindale, Head of Advisory for KPMG Gibraltar, and the organiser of the KPMG eSummits since 2010, commented on the 2017 edition:
“I was delighted with both the content and the attendance this year – and the generosity of the feedback is really encouraging. On a personal note, it was a pleasure to lead the gender diversity workshop, and I feel there is some really important work we can do in this area to assist the many operators who are missing out on competitive advantage in terms of their talent and customer base.
