This year’s nominated charity is Macmillan Cancer Support. To raise funds staff wore Christmas jumpers for charity. CK also made a donation to Macmillan instead of sending Christmas cards, with many members of staff also opting to give to charity instead of sending cards.
In total CK made a donation of over £500 to Macmillan Cancer Support. Many thanks to all who took part.
PrimeGlobal 2016 round up
2016 has been a busy year for CK in PrimeGlobal, an association of independent accounting firms, with over 300 members in approximately 90 countries world wide. Managing Partner Peter Davies entered his final year as Chair of the World Board, completing his 2 year term of office in May 2016. Peter has remained active in PrimeGlobal and is still a member of both the World and EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) Boards.
2016 was the year for regional conferences and Peter was only one of 3 who completed the ‘Grand Slam’ of conferences attending all four, held in various locations across the world, including Nagoya in Japan.
Other members of the CK team to have attended conferences this year include Belinda Morgan and Alex Boulter at the UK & Ireland conference held in London in July and Iain Johnstone attending a marketing meeting in Dublin in November.
2016 also saw Alex Boulter be seconded to fellow PrimeGlobal firm Buzzacott, based in London, for two months to work on academy and charity audits. This was a useful opportunity for Alex to share best practice.
2017 proves to be another busy year for CK in PrimeGlobal with the World Conference and UK & Ireland conferences to look forward to!
Paul Carpenter and Ben Osbourne have both passed exams at the Professional Stage of the ICAEW exams. Congratulations to both of them!
