President's Message December 2023

Dear Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

As we near the end of another year, it's time to reflect on the wild ride we've had as the President of the IMA Chapter Switzerland.

Let's be honest, 2023 was a bit of a whirlwind for the finance world, and our management accountants felt the turbulence. It was like trying to balance your checkbook during a tornado! But hey, through it all, our chapter held strong, and I couldn't be more thrilled about our collective journey.

This New Year season brings the usual resolutions and a chance for renewal. On behalf of the Board of our Chapter, I promise that we'll be there to support you, whether you're navigating the maze of emerging technologies, fine-tuning your negotiation skills, or even working on your personal brand. We're your trusty compass in this professional adventure!

We've come a long way together, and in 2023, we hosted numerous events, laughed, and learned together. We've tackled challenges head-on, and our shared experiences have made us stronger. As we look ahead, remember that no matter how many curveballs the future throws our way, as long as we stick to our values, maintain our integrity, and keep our professionalism intact, we'll find a way to conquer it all.

So, as we celebrate the festive season, I wish you moments of joy, laughter, and maybe even a few delightful surprises. And as we dive headfirst into 2024, let's do it with a sense of humor, resilience, and the confidence that together, we're an unstoppable force!

Thank you for being an integral part of our incredible chapter, and I'm excited to see what we'll achieve as we journey into the coming year.

Warm regards,

Ekaterina Emelianova

President, IMA Switzerland Chapter
