Accountants for Business

Accountants for Business is a program which explores the interaction between people, professionals, and performance, the vital role this plays for successful businesses, and accountants as true value creators. A key part of the program is the work of ACCA’s Accountants for Business Global Forum, a business-focussed think-tank which looks at the issues that specifically impact the corporate sector, pulling on expertise from other Global Forums as needed.
