CA Magazine April 2015
In the Apri issue of The CA, we profile incoming ICAS President Jim Pettigrew CA, as he outlines his plans and ambitions for his presidential year.
Jim was also a participant, in his role as Chairman of Clydesdale Bank, in our Banking round table. Part of the Business Insights series of events and articles, our panel of senior commentators also included RBS board director Brendan Nelson CA, Jim Coyle CA of Lloyds Banking Group and David Sayer, global banking partner with KPMG. Hear what they had to say about the multiple challenges of new competition, tougher regulation and the need to change banking culture.
Also in this issue, we ask: How is the energy sector in the North Sea coping with the slump in the oil price? How does that compare with other producing regions? And above all, what needs to happen in order for the UK's oil & gas industry to remain competitive?
The April issue also includes the last column from outgoing President Jann Brown CA; a look at in-house options vs outsourcing for payroll management; and comment on the 2015 Budget.
