New look and feel for CA magazine: February 2020 issue
I have been reflecting recently on something Barack Obama once said: “What I worry about most is our empathy deficit. When I speak to students, I tell them that one of the most important things we can do is to look through somebody else’s eyes.”
In this age of tech and AI, that empathy, that human connection, is more important than ever. That’s the thinking behind our new-look magazine. At ICAS, we know there are so many unsung stories from CAs, concerning the great work they do in powering businesses, upholding values and ethics. To reflect this, our relaunched magazine will carry more focus on the human stories behind the amazing and vital work that CAs carry out, in the UK and around the world.
We’ll be giving you thought-provoking articles that shine a light on our global profession, as well as keeping you abreast of new developments in this fast-changing community. We want to generate debate, and truly represent your voice.
In this month’s issue our CEO, Bruce Cartwright, takes us through six key issues for the year (and decade) ahead. Yancey Strickler, co-founder and former CEO of Kickstarter, explains why business needs to look beyond profit, while Rachel Byrne CA chats to us about how Burberry transformed its fortune and image.
In this issue we explore technological innovations, chat to CAs about life abroad and hear from three CAs who are transforming the world of finance.
Also, inside you’ll find information about this year’s Top Young CAs competition, which opens for nominations in February.
We hope you enjoy the issue and would love to hear your inspiring stories. Please share them with us.
