Milsted Langdon was pleased to be one of the sponsors of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales’ (ICAEW) West of England Chartered Accountancy (WESCA) Dinner on 21 April 2016 at Bristol’s Grand Mercure Hotel.
Milsted Langdon hosted a table, with guests from local professional organisations. The WESCA dinner is considered by accountancy professionals as one of the most important annual events in their diaries as it enables practitioners, clients and key contacts to congregate, network and socialise and consider how they can contribute to the South West’s economy and ongoing regeneration.
The evening began with a pre-dinner reception in the Mercure’s Ballroom, followed by dinner in the Wessex Suite, where TV favourite Rory Bremner delivered a hugely entertaining after-dinner speech in the voices of every imaginable public figure. His impersonations of The Queen on her 90th birthday, US President Barack Obama and post-Panama Papers Prime Minister David Cameron were particularly well received by an appreciative audience, which comprised professionals with extensive knowledge of high net worth individuals’ tax affairs.
Milsted Langdon’s representatives and guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening, with Forensic Partner Roger Isaacs describing it as ‘a memorable event at which we were all able to relax, eat and drink well and catch up with business acquaintances and clients in a less formal setting than those in which we usually see them’.
Organiser ICAEW sponsored the Prince’s Trust, with all donations from the dinner going to local initiatives.
