Professional or social relationships with individuals who have business relationships with ICAEW

As a public company board member who chairs and sits on audit, risk and finance committees, I have relationships with dozens of individuals within all the Big Four in addition to other firms and suppliers that may work with the ICAEW.  In addition as an EY alumnus, this number is probably in the hundreds as it relates to EY.  Given my links to the IT community, sustainability/climate change community, and individuals in the CBI and other business, accounting and audit organizations, I am sure the list of social relationships with individuals who have business relationships with the ICAEW is lengthy.  What I do not know is the nature or materiality of these individuals’ relationships.  I can state that these relationships do not include me serving as an advocate for any organization in their dealings with the ICAEW and vice versa.

Any other matters you feel should be identified

I am involved in the ICAEW Women in Leadership programme for which I am paid by the ICAEW for formal mentoring sessions.
