PwC's Davos dinner goes swimmingly

As activity at Davos begins to wrap up for another year, the discussions so far have been really good. Busy days and evenings for myself and the other official PwC delegates:  Ian Powell (PwC UK senior partner), Bob Moritz (PwC US senior partner), Norbert Winkeljohann (PwC Germany senior partner), and Cassie Wong (PwC Asia-Pacific Tax Leader).

The largest hotel in Davos and the place where we host the PwC Lounge – the Steigenberger Belvédère Hotel – was buzzing yesterday evening as some 200 business executives, government officials and media leaders from around the world gathered to attend PwC’s annual cocktail, dinner and nightcap.

This event has become a tradition in Davos and as always, I really enjoyed renewing old friendships and building new ones. The number of our clients joining us for dinner is always impressive.  And it's always inspiring to see so many people from so many different parts of the world with a connection to PwC. 

This year we were very lucky to have one of the greatest athletes of all time – Michael Phelps – as our guest of honour. As the world’s most decorated sportsman with 22 medals, including 18 gold, Michael’s achievements and dedication as an athlete and active philanthropist make him a role model for people from all walks of life. In addition to his sporting triumphs, Michael established the Michael Phelps Foundation, which focuses on growing the sport of swimming and promoting healthier lifestyles, an inspiration for us all.
