Christmas party season began for me in Lagos with the ACCA 10th Anniversary in Nigeria dinner. It was a lovely do, with food, live music, lots of accountants, and of course the very tipsy older accountant who gave us ‘young ones’ a talk on ‘the morality of esteeming financial consideration above ethics and experience gathering‘ – his exact words 🙂 COPYRIGHT © countingonaccounting and Nuan Moji, 2015.

No one likes being used baldly. Continue reading “Working your Network”
Around July last year, word of possible increase to the bi-yearly ACCA exam sitting spread round the ACCA student and professionals community.
