ICAEW launches debut podcast series More Than A Number

  • New ICAEW podcast explores how business leaders unpack numbers to make key decisions
  • Financial journalist Louise Cooper hosts More Than A Number, with guests drawn from across business, charity and society
  • Series examines topics including sustainability, the gender pay gap and the ageing workforce

ICAEW has launched More Than A Number, a new podcast series which goes behind key numbers to discover how these statistics are impacting our lives.

In the first episode, which is available now, financial journalist and Chartered Financial Analyst Louise Cooper discusses 1.5C, and the questions it raises, with a panel that includes: Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader of the Green Party; John Kornerup Bang, from shipping company Maersk; Mardi McBrien, from the Climate Disclosure Standards Board; and Michael Izza, ICAEW Chief Executive.

Guests across the series include Dame Helena Morrissey and Lord Malloch Brown. Each episode will hear the views of a number of guests, handpicked to represent different sides of the debate.

Jeremy Mooney, ICAEW Director of Communications and Brand, said: ‘Chartered accountants sit at the heart of every business and do not take numbers at face value.

‘We’ve launched More Than A Number to unpack some of the numbers which pose profound questions about the future. We’re delighted guests from across industry and society will join these discussions about sustainability, the gender pay gap and more, and we’re excited to be able to share our passion for numbers and our tradition of critical thinking with a wider audience.’

The first two episodes of More Than A Number are available now.
