Meet ICAEW’s new Business & Industrial Strategy team

ICAEW’s new Business & Industrial Strategy team has been established to ensure that the knowledge, expertise and insight of ICAEW members in business, including those in London, are heard.

Iain Wright, Director for Business and Industrial Strategy

June 2019

There are more than 60,000 of our members working in and running businesses of all sizes and in all sectors throughout the UK, around 14,000 of which are in London. ICAEW can play a unique and important role in ensuring that these members’ insights are harnessed to help shape and improve business policy at all levels. It can also provide relevant and interesting services and products for ICAEW members.

The team concentrates on three distinct but closely related areas: business strategy, regional industrial strategy and board effectiveness. Working closely with ICAEW colleagues across the country, the team want to harness the expertise of members to better inform key players on the issues impacting businesses, sectors and regions.

Work has begun, for example, on looking at member views on the Brydon review of audit standards, asking what the businesses that are audited want the audit product to look like in the future?

We hope you will take the opportunity to engage with us, through the ecosystem ICAEW has built with Regions, Communities, Faculties and the Business & Industrial Strategy team to inform us on important issues such as skills, audit and corporate governance. Your views and experiences are invaluable to us, and we are in an exceptional position to use them to make a difference for our members and the good of the economy.
