I joined Spinnaker Consulting Ltd in 2008. I quickly heard about WISTA through a colleague and immediately became a member. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the industry as a whole and to meet some new contacts. I was made to feel very welcome and have made some good friends, but the experience was also very educational.
