Ned Shelton, Ivan Zammit, Stefano Oragano and Courtney Gleeson were thrilled to attend the ETL Global Conference 2023 in Berlin.

Sheltons have been a proud member of ETL GLOBAL for many years and the conference in Berlin was a great way to see other members representing various professional firms from around the world.

The main theme of the event was “Managing the Professional Service Firm”. A lot of emphasis was placed on practical knowledge and strategies that are implemented within the professional service firms that are part of the ETL GLOBAL network.

It was a wonderful opportunity to network with professionals, some old and many new faces! It is always great to connect with like-minded individuals and build on the relationships we have at ETL GLOBAL.

Ned, Ivan, Stefano and Courtney look forward to attending future ETL GLOBAL events and connecting with more members.
