    I work in the Public Sector for the Civil Service.  I became involved in the panels as I wanted to help shape the future of ACCA for its members.  Being on two panels and chair of the West Midlands panel is challenging but gives me a broader network and involvement in topics that are focussed on the industry and region I work in.  ACCA is a forward thinking organisation always striving for to be the best for its members, and  I am grateful for the opportunities I have through my involvement.

    I work in the public sector, leading on financial oversight of the Government’s flagship Apprenticeship Service programme. I became a panel member in 2019 to be actively involved in shaping finance for the future. I completed the Leaders of Tomorrow programme in 2018, formed great networks and really enjoyed talking to people about the changing role of a finance professional and how ACCA can support its members. Being part of the panel allows me to continue this conversation and inspire new talent to enter the profession.

    I am a FCCA qualified accounting manager for Caterpillar Financial Services.  The reason I wanted to be involved with the panel is because I feel ACCA is a great practical qualification for accounting professionals and helps them to gain the necessary skills and knowledge expected for an accountant.  Once you are qualified there will be plenty of professional opportunities available for you in more senior positions within different businesses and different sectors.  I am proud to be an ACCA flagbearer and I want to help to inspire other people and share the possibilities afforded by the ACCA qualifications.
