Difference Makers

In this section we look at Chartered Accountants who have transformed communities, businesses, and the wider world, making a real difference in the lives of others. We call them “Difference Makers”.

Chartered Accountants – Difference Makers

Finance touches every part of every organisation. The skills, perspectives and training that Chartered Accountants have makes them a force for real change when it is needed most. Chartered Accountants’ contribution at work, in communities, society and the wider economy makes them true “Difference Makers”.

Now, as the world struggles to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, and grapples with the disruption caused by the war in Ukraine, we face huge financial and business challenges. The right advice will be critical. That is why there has never been a better time for governments, businesses, and individuals to work together and to understand the value that Chartered Accountants bring.

Difference Makers Discuss Webinars

From diversity and inclusion to mental health, and from trust in business to digital disruption and the climate emergency, we’ll take an unflinching look.

Every episode will feature difference makers from the Chartered Accountants Worldwide family in a conversation that will touch on some of the biggest issues facing businesses today.  Each guest will give their valuable perspective on an issue they’ve directly experienced in their working lives.

Too many industries are not making changes to improve sustainability at a rapid enough pace. Recent climate events – from heatwaves, floods and wildfires that are occurring regularly and globally are an indicator that man-made climate change is very much happening now.
