Around 150 guests attended the event, held on 11 April at the Four Seasons Limassol.

CISI chair, Michael Cole-Fontayn MCSI remarked how wonderful it was to work with such an energised and engaged NAC, while getting a chance to meet the local members.

"It was also a great honour to receive significant keynote speeches from the chair of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) , Demetra Kalogerou; and our NAC president and Cyprus branch president, Petros Florides, Chartered FCSI. Our many thanks go to the sponsors for their contribution to the success of the dinner and for their hospitality and insightful presentations to the Board the following day," he added.

Petros said: "It was my honour as president of the Cyprus NAC to welcome around 150 guests in celebration of our tenth anniversary in Cyprus.
