“We were also fortunate to have Jim McCabe as our chief speaker; we work closely with Standard Chartered Bank and it was a pleasure to welcome him to our celebrations of all things ACCA.”
Pauline Hobson, an ACCA Council member since 2008, spoke during the eveningabout ACCA’s recent campaign about the compete finance professional; this campaign shows how the ACCA qualified accountant is the complete package, trained in all aspects of financial and management skills.
Mohua Rashid concluded: “This public value message was central to our night’s celebrations as we held a public value drama, with people acting out a scenario to bring public value and trust issues to life.
“Public value for ACCA acting in the public interest, promoting ethical business and supporting economic growth – and we wanted to show what they mean through the medium of a live drama! This was a funbut also serious way to highlight an issue that really matters to ACCA, and to the profession.”
