delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead ACCA Scotland at
this time. The Scottish economy has suffered over the past few years and our
members are key to securing a prosperous future for Scottish businesses and the
Scottish presence is thriving and growing all the time. I intend to make sure
ACCA is well-placed to articulate the voice of the Scottish business community
throughout and beyond these difficult times. To this aim, I am already
working with our press and marketing team to further develop our media links.
the success of ACCA Scotland is the
need for members to feel engaged with ACCA. I am looking forward to meeting many
of you at ACCA events or in the workplace over the coming months. I am
particularly interested in understanding what you want from ACCA and how ACCA
can support you in your day-to-day employment.
I am a graduate
of Glasgow Caledonian University, and I trained and worked at
Coopers and Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers), qualifying in 1994, before
joining ACCA in 1997 as a training
experience to date with ACCA has focused on the employer market, growing our
student base and working with employers to ensure the best training for their
ACCA students. I know that many of us have met in this context.
promotion follows a two year term as ACCA UK business development manager
with specific responsibility for the UK regions (particularly
concentrating on ACCA’s employer relationships with the SME and SMP sectors across the country). I
fully believe that this experience will enhance my work as head of ACCA Scotland.
to lead ACCA Scotland in recruiting
the best finance trainees, ensuring they work hard to pass their examinations
and become members. But most of all I want to lead an ACCA Scotland that our membership is proud of. An ACCA Scotland that provides the support members
need in their business lives.
drop me an email, or give me a call. I look forward to speaking.
