And we’ve already started to reap the benefits of this agreement, with Steve Heathcote joining us for a global webinar recently about the road to recovery from Covid-19. Sharing our expertise is of immense value to our members and also the wider profession, especially during these turbulent times. All at ACCA look forward to delivering the projects, events and training we’re planning together.’
