    Working as associate director at Inifinity Partnership Limited based in Aberdeen. Infinity Partnership specialises in providing strategic business advice, accountancy services and tax planning to owner-managed businesses. We can guide clients through special circumstances such as start-up or acquisition, as well as day-to-day procedures.

    Primarily I got involved in the panel as a way of giving back and helping shape the future of ACCA, primarily reflecting on my experiences of being an ACCA student.  Being part of the panel helps get a perspective of the local economy from both practice and industry.  It has also strengthened my network.
