Regional Manager Update
WIs it safe to say that Winter is coming to an end? Myself and the team have definitely noted the longer daylight hours especially in the mornings, coming into the office early for our Young Chartered Accountants, CAs in Business and Public Practice Advisory Committee meetings over the last couple of weeks.
Last week we welcomed the high achievers in our CA Program to come in and receive their merit certificates. Merits are awarded to candidates who achieve in the top 5% of marks for their modules, and we congratulate these members on their fantastic achievements.
Last night, we held the latest in our Learning Bites Series for our early career Chartered Accountants. This session, focusing on business and personal brand on LinkedIn, was well attended and very well received. Participants gained great insights from PR and Marketing Specialist Sandra Tricoli, who demonstrated the impact of their social media posts and provided great tips to increase engagement through tried and tested strategies. Never underestimate the power of your LinkedIn presence!
Vale Tony Douglas-Brown FCA
It is with great sadness that we were informed of the passing of Tony Douglas-Brown FCA on the 8th of July after a long illness. Tony became a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 1978. Tony’s career in accounting specialised in the area of insolvency.
Throughout his career Tony always had an active role as a leader. He was responsible for, but also worked to improve the local and national practices he worked in and he would often be called up to national partners meetings to discuss strategy and setting the direction of these practices. In 2014 he and friend and colleague Dino Travaglini CA established the Perth insolvency practice of Cor Cordis. Dino described him as 'a true gentleman and generous and talented man.'
We offer our deepest condolences to Tony's family and loved ones, and his colleagues at this very difficult time.
