  • CEO & Company Directors
We requested that Tony deliver an engaging, entertaining, stimulating and informative presentation which would provide a comprehensive "Economic Review/Update" covering Global and Local Economic Developments, Prospects, Risks and Opportunities, how these are driving and impacting upon the local economy and the implications for investors, borrowers, businesses and householders, both now and looking forward - and that is exactly what he did. As a result, our Members went away much more informed and better equipped to manage their businesses and clients going forward, having been entertained and stimulated in the process.
