When and most importantly why did you join the AIC?
When I was working for PWC, I was asked by the Partners to join AIC for professional development (great Speakers lunches and niche Professional events) but also to stay connected to our clients and to connect with our community. Today I'm involved in the Civics Concerns area of the AIC, which energizes me to not only become aware of the needs of others less fortunate in Geneva - but to support them together with other Club members.
