Leicestershire Law Society were extremely proud to have hosted the first Matrix Professional Network in collaboration with the ICAEW, the ACCA and ATT/CIOT. Over 100 guests from Leicester’s business community attended the newest cross-sector networking event, held at the elegant Mattioli Woods Sky Lounge on 22nd October. Supported by headline sponsors The Miller Partnership and secondary sponsors Greens Catering Services and CATAX.

Matrix has been created for lawyers, accountants and tax advisors in the Leicester area to forge closer professional links with each other and the wider business community in an informal setting whilst relaxing with fizz and canapes. Glynis Wright, President of the Leicestershire Law Society, gave the welcoming speech at this exciting event, which included an outstanding performance from 18 year old singer Kara Hamer, as well as soft jazz throughout the night from saxophonist Chris Dunkley. With tickets selling out days before the event, Glynis Wright is pleased to announce that over £500 was raised for charities Alex’s Wish and The Travers Foundation.

Whilst the key purpose of the event is to create synergy between professions, it will also be used as an opportunity to raise money for a chosen Charity and will be creating opportunities for rising stars in our community to showcase their talents as singers, musicians and performers.  After such a successful evening, plans are already coming together for the next Matrix Professional Network, which is planned for Spring 2020.
