What does it mean to win? ACCA members and firms were amongst the winners in 2014. Here’s what those involved had to say:
Anita Brook – managing director, Accounts Assist: ‘I’m thrilled to be named “Practitioner of the Year”. I’m passionate about the benefits of choosing to be in practice and the opportunities this presents for continuous professional growth. Having only qualified at the age of 32, this award shows anything is possible if you put your mind to it.’
Karen Thompson – training manager, Reeves: ‘We’re delighted to be named “Training Team of the Year” at this year’s British Accountancy Awards. We pride ourselves on supporting and developing our trainees as they study for their professional exams and take a great deal of pride from the fact our efforts have been recognised by our peers.’
Caroline and Nick Cole – co-directors, Savoir Faire Accounting: ‘Having been short-listed in 2013, we were delighted to go one step further and be crowned winners in the “start up category” this year. In particular, it’s pleasing to see the judges’ recognition of the lengths we go to satisfy our clients, many of whom operate across the English Channel.’
