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.
