KPMG Alumni Get together 2011 

In its 20th year of existence, the KPMG Ford Rhodes Thornton & Company’s alumni met at a relaxed restaurant under the Colombo lighthouse to renew old relationships and meet new members.

 

 

It was great to see people from similar eras at KPMG (or FRT as its fondly known) were reminiscing of their battles and triumphs which laid the best foundation for their professional lives. The music was loud but our alumni were even louder, as they could not hold back their tales any longer.

 

The alumni also conducted a raffle draw with more than 15 prizes on offer. The collections will be channeled to a Corporate Citizenship project under the supervision of KPMG Foundation. At our event last year all proceeds was donated towards the project supported by KPMG, related to the establishment of a library for the Learning and Empowerment Institute of the North Development Project in Mankulam together with the Foundation of Goodness. The Foundation of Goodness has planned a “Learning and Development Institute” in the northern region of Sri Lanka. KPMG, who partnered with the Foundation of Goodness in the development of the Southern town of Seenigama thought this was a great opportunity for the Alumni to become a part of the commitment to improve the lives of people in rural communities affected by disasters. KPMG has planned to continue to support this endeavour.

 

Commenting on the event Alumni network coordinating partner for KPMG, Suren Rajakarier said; “It’s good to see many of our Alumni continuing to participate at these events. The committee member’s commitment to support a worthy cause by conducting a raffle shows everyone that we should make a positive impact on society and support our Corporate Citizenship goals.”
