Celebrating Heritage Day in Johannesburg was a wonderful opportunity to bring together our team from offices around the globe! On Wednesday, 24 September 2014, the Austen Morris Associates Shanghai and Manila teams met with the Africa team and had a South African style Braai, which is a barbecue with traditions similar to a potluck party where people gather and socialize, while also celebrating Heritage Day! Heritage Day is when South Africans near and far celebrate their traditions and beliefs originating from a Zulu king name Shaka, who helped unite the different clans into one nation. It was a nice opportunity for the Shanghai and Africa teams to meet and mingle as Africa is an increasingly competitive and diverse emerging market, providing potential investment opportunities. We were lucky to have so many members of Austen Morris Associates all together to join the day including, Angie Swann Client Services Manager, Cherry Vi Client Services Manager, Greg Morris Founding Senior Partner, James Colclough Managing Senior Partner, Jon Holand Senior Partner, Keith Strong Consultant, Matthew Riddington Partner, Stuart Baldwin Senior Partner, William Coppin Partner, Alan Vassallo Partner, Anu Aggarwal Head of Recruitment & Operations, Jennifer Morris Head of Administration, Kirk McArdle Consultant, Michelle Hill Executive Assistant to Africa Regional Manager, Philip Morris Executive Director, Sheena Van Rooijen Business Development Consultant, Wade Dawson Africa Regional Manager and Senior Partner, Warren Lewis Business Development Consultant, Rachel Glover Client Services Manager, Candice Yao Executive Assistant to Executive Director and Marketing Consultants Katie Littlefield and Kevin Mann. Thank you to everyone who traveled from near and far to celebrate what will become one of AMA’s favorite global holidays!
