As another year draws to a close, we look back on the year past. During 2023, Hawkins attended over 70 different conferences, seminars and social gatherings, we welcomed 17 new experts to the business, and we hosted our annual winter receptions in London, Dubai, Singapore, and Hong Kong, allowing us to spend time with clients in person.
Our annual receptions began in London with our Burning Questions event with guests Nick Sherliker of Charles Taylor and Luke Ayres of Keoghs LLP joining our panel to present an immersive timeline of a multi-disciplinary fire investigation.
Dubai Regional Director Chris Wareham hosted his annual event at Hunter & Barrel. Joined by colleagues from across the globe, this allowed for a great opportunity to forge new relationships and further cement the existing ones.
It was a pleasure to speak with so many old faces and meet some new ones over a drink and canapes, especially as in some cases, it was the first time we had seen clients from the region since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our annual office events concluded in Singapore. Keeping with tradition, Regional Manager David Rose received guests at the Singapore Cricket Club with some guests making the trip over from Thailand.

The occasion provided an opportunity to introduce guests to the wider team including Dr Sophie Parsons and Forensic Architect Niralee Casson who travelled from the UK.
It was a delight to host these gatherings and reconnect with so many. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who attended and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
