ACCA Cymru/Wales celebrates St David’s Day with reminder of core values

ACCA Cymru/Wales marked St David’s Day by hearing a reminder of core values which mark the best of civic life in the country.

Noel Mooney, CEO of the Football Association of Wales (FAW), told the 21st annual ACCA Cymru/Wales St David’s Day Business Breakfast, sponsored by Menzies and University of South Wales, of the impact that the success of the men’s and women’s senior teams had in building Wales’ reputation internationally.

Speaking to an audience of 190 business professionals from across Wales, Noel Mooney reminded the audience of the need for good governance, strong values and brand, and of committing to inclusivity, equality and sustainability.

He talked about supporting the development of grassroots football through the Cymru Football Foundation – the charity supported by the breakfast.

Noel Mooney also challenged accountants and finance professionals to play their part by giving something back by supporting good financial management at clubs across the country.

Lloyd Powell, head of ACCA Cymru/Wales, said: 'The event was run online in 2021 and 2022 so it was great to be back face to face, especially hearing such a great message from the Football Association of Wales. Noel’s message about ethics, integrity and good governance should resonate with every ACCA member and the wider business community in Wales on St David’s Day.'
