The CA magazine: September 2016
The competitors may be home now from the 2016 Olympic Games, but the work goes on as Rio prepares to host the Paralympics. CA Tom Warwick, Program & Planning Manager for the Olympic Village, tells The CA magazine about his highlights from Rio 2016 and the challenges in creating a living environment for the world’s greatest athletes.
Also in the September issue, we look at the key issues around Brexit and what it might mean now for business, professional practice, financial services and tax. The feature includes expert comment from senior figures in the profession. As the shock of the European referendum’s result is replaced by a protracted period of uncertainty, how are business leaders dealing with it?
In the Last Word, Michael Moore CA, former secretary of state for Scotland and now a senior adviser with PwC, talks about the actions businesses should be taking now to reinforce confidence among investors, customers, suppliers and staff.
Our exclusive poll of finance directors also finds last year’s cautious optimism replaced by concerns about the UK economy. But what do FDs want to see coming out of the Brexit negotiations? Find out in September’s issue of The CA.
The finance directors’ feature also includes the FDs’ Who’s Who, with profiles of the ICAS members in the CFO role across a wide range of industries and world locations.
Aside from Brexit, we examine how advances in technology, especially cloud-based accounting and its related applications, are changing the way accountants work and their relationship with their clients. We look at examples of accountancy practices that are making the most of what the new approach has to offer and talk to the industry experts.
We also feature an interview with Jo Malone – soon to be speaking at the ICAS Conference – on starting all over again in the fragrance business.
Finally, if you are based overseas, don’t miss the expanded International section for 'Inside ICAS'.
