Reflecting on 2023, it is clear that ABSL members have demonstrated remarkable resilience and adaptability in the face of new challenges: from geopolitical turmoil, global economic headwinds, to the latest legislative fiscal changes, new Generative AI tools, shifts in organizational culture and people practices. Despite the ever-evolving landscape, we have witnessed a continued growth in our industry, whether through securing new clients, expanding services for existing ones, or navigating the complexities of our field to add value. The hybrid work environment, alongside the geopolitical and economic shifts, determined innovation and flexibility, traits that have become a hallmark of our community. Amidst all these, ABSL offered a collaborative platform of shared learning and exchange of best practices, thereby fortifying our industry’s ability to thrive and capitalize on emerging opportunities.
