    I have been a proud member of my local network panel, Glasgow and West of Scotland for the last 5 years and elected to Chair in 2017 which was an immense privilege.

    Being a member of the panel not only allows me to advocate ACCA but affords me the opportunity give back to my association as well as playing my part in shaping its future.

    ACCA has given me the business acumen and set of transferable skills that have saw my career grow to Financial Controller within the Scottish Higher Education sector from trainee account within the airline sector.

    Whilst studying towards my ACCA membership, I attended CPD events organised by ACCA Scotland which I found to be enjoyable. The events offered unique insights impacting our industry, and I appreciated getting the opportunity to listen to prestigious speakers from across different sectors. Once I qualified, I applied to become a member of my local network panel to allow me to become more involved with events.

    I work as a Group Accountant in the automotive industry with Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd.
