Last Thursday 8 October we formally opened our new office on Rosemary Street, Belfast. It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces in the building and we hope you had a chance to catch up with staff and meet some new contacts who you could potentially do business with. I want to offer my thanks to Stephen Ferris for taking the time to come down before the game at Windsor Park. We would all agree “Stevie” was a gentleman and took time to talk to as many people as possible during the evening, posing for pictures and signing his book for those who had a copy.

The real star of the show was Professor Neil Gibson who spoke incredibly well. His talk was captivating and gave a real insight into the current state of play in Northern Ireland. As I said when introducing Neil he really has a no “BS” approach and was to the point throughout. It was refreshing to see such a brilliant economist being so accurate and honest. From our perspective at Bell & Company the presentation demonstrated the great strides Northern Ireland has made but also that we have a long way to go until the country is on a sure economic footing.

The team at the office worked incredibly hard in organising the event. There was no outside help here and our brilliant team did everything for you that evening and I appreciate the round of applause given. Without our great team we would be unable to achieve the results we do on a regular basis so I once again thank them all for their continuing efforts.

If you missed out on the event, don’t worry we plan to host many more. Our theme is “Real Issues in today’s Financial World” and we shall keep this going. Please keep an eye on social media and posts online for our next event and be sure to confirm your attendance.

I think you’d agree the new office is fantastic and offers a welcoming environment. Should you ever be in the area and want to discuss anything then please get in touch. Furthermore, if you know anyone who could benefit from any of our services then please call us on 02895 217373 and we can discuss the outline of the case and look to assist.

Thanks again to those who attended and if you couldn’t make it we look forward to seeing you soon.
