MSI is very much a global organisation and it is both important and interesting to keep abreast of which members are making news in their own countries and further afield. That’s why the monthly MSI News eDM is useful. it goes out to all members and all members are asked to contribute to it with news, items of business impact and reports of successes and opportunities. It provides an excellent snapshot view of the health, vitality and professionalism of the individual member firms. It also encompasses MSI members award winning activities.
Reviewing the June 2016 issue, it is fascinating to see just how many MSI Member firms are being recognised for achievements and professional expertise and specialisations, on an ongoing basis – and many in the last month alone. Over a longer period, it is clear that the MSI Global Alliance membership is highly rated by outside groups and organisations. Importantly, while firms will always promote their strengths (and quite rightly so), it is far more beneficial from a client perspective when the accolades and awards come from third parties – third parties who have taken a detailed look at the firms concerned and rated them over and above others in their localities and areas of work or expertise.
