Q3 2022

Julia Seppä ACA

There is something special in the early leaves drifting from the trees. Autumn reminds me that no matter what we are all allowed a chance to peel and start again. I hope you will check and sign up for European events available in your geography whether to brush up on your technical knowledge or join a member social. ICAEW has also made available all tech content to help members master tech and data by removing paywalls. Make a good use of it! I will be glad to hear from you.

Q2 2022

David Crackett BSc FCA

In uncertain times, grass root communities are of fundamental importance. With over 4,000 members in our ICAEW Europe & Eurasia constituency we have lots of opportunities of strengthening our bonds with fellow Chartered Accountants. KEEP IN TOUCH through our Country Groups, our City Groups, our Contact Members and our LinkedIn Groups.

It’s time for a summer slowdown. I hope you can prioritise down time to pause and recharge, spend time outside, reconnect with friends, make time for summer reading, use your vacation days, and take a trip. Perhaps you may also want to refresh the knowledge of what’s available to you as an ICAEW member, so you are better equipped to navigate complexity in today’s world. Check the links in this June newsletter and keep in touch through our country groups, online communities, and LinkedIn groups. Please, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I will be glad to hear from you. Enjoy your summer! 

Q1 2022

David Crackett BSc FCA

Members in our Europe & Eurasia Constituency are facing threats and difficulties unprecedented in most of our lifetimes: After two years of pandemic, we now have war, sanctions, escalating energy prices, and inflation to deal with. 

We must help each other. Strengthen our ICAEW Community. Use all the tools available to us: communicate with your fellow ACAs and FCAs and look for support from caba. Stick together and support each other.

I know that many of you have been hoping for a better year filled with social interactions and, perhaps, travelling. I must admit that I was hoping for a great 2022. The year where we focus on sustainable growth and restoration of human connection.

Then Russia attacked Ukraine, and the world has changed. I know this is a difficult time for many ICAEW members, particularly for those who have employees, colleagues, friends and family in Ukraine and Russia. I am no exception to this.

I encourage you to check the links in this newsletter with relevant information on Russia sanctions, as well as on how to support and help your colleagues, friends and family and manage your own wellbeing. I also encourage you to continue helping in any way you can. Little things pave the way to peace. Please, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I will be glad to hear from you.  

Q3 2021

David Crackett BSc FCA

Just 50 years ago I graduated in what is now called Environmental Sciences but decided to train as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant. Little did I know that 50 years on, I would be deeply involved, through ICAEW, in environmental issues. My message to younger members is don’t be afraid to flow with the stream, provided you can keep it clean! 

Julia Seppӓ ACA

ICAEW chartered accountants are business leaders, first and foremost. This is why we are well-placed to drive climate action. Don’t wait to get involved in your or your clients’ net zero journeys – or be the conversation starter!
