Canterbury, United Kingdom, November 29, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Kreston Reeves, one of the leading accountancy and financial services firms located across London, Kent and Sussex and member of Kreston International, is delighted to announce that it has won the "International Social Networking" award and "International Business Referrer" award at the Kreston International Awards 2017.
The Kreston International Awards 2017 was held at Kreston International's 46th Annual Worldwide Conference on 9 November 2017 at the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Hotel Siem Reap, Cambodia. 106 delegates from 60 member firms in 34 countries attended the conference.
Kreston Reeves has been named "International Business Referrer" of the year in acknowledgement of the firm making the most business referrals across the Kreston International network over the past year. This is the second consecutive year that the firm has been successful in this category.
The firm was also awarded for "International Social Networking" in recognition of Tiffany Chiu, Audit Controller and Asia desk representative, for her use of social media platforms in the UK and China in expanding her professional network, which has in turn delivered tangible results for the firm.
Tiffany, Hong Kong born and fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English, has played a significant role in building and strengthening the firm’s international relationships visiting Kreston member firms in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore in 2017 alone. She has a strong presence across a number of social media platforms including LinkedIn and Twitter, and regularly uses other mediums such as WhatsApp and its Chinese equivalent WeChat, to communicate with her connections.
Tiffany commented, “I am proud to have been awarded by my Kreston colleagues. Social platforms are often overlooked by professionals, but they are a flexible and informal way to engage with other busy professionals, and are a great step towards building relationships. Social media provides me with a platform to interact with my connections, both old and new, whenever and wherever I am. I really feel part of a network who I can connect and share ideas with, both socially and professionally.”
Andrew Griggs, Senior Partner at Kreston Reeves commented, “I am delighted that Tiffany has been recognised for her hard work in using social media to build and strengthen relationships. She is very effective at taking these relationships offline and into the business world, and a worthy winner of this award.
"For Kreston Reeves to be awarded as 'Internal Business Referrer' for the second year running recognises our increasing contribution to the work undertaken throughout the Kreston International network, for which I am proud. Our participation in this network provides a wide range of benefits for our clients who increasingly either have, or want to develop activities outside of the UK. We look forward to continuing to work with the other network members and to further develop the network in the future."
