Summary

I am a Chartered Certified Accountant, having spent the formative years of my accountancy career progressing with two blue-chip multinational companies, and then as a board member of an autonomous operating subsidiary of another blue-chip multinational. As a Registered UK Statutory Auditor ( still current),  I subsequently developed a thriving accountancy practice providing tax, audit and forensic accounting services to a broad national client base of SMEs and high net worth individuals. With an active interest in professional practice subject areas, since 1997 I have served on the auditing examinations panel of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA ), both as an assessor and as an auditing examiner.

Since 2002 I have also served as a member of the ACCA's ( national) tax committee and global forum for taxation, the conduit through which the Association represents its members on taxation matters by liaising with government agencies and other organisations about taxation systems generally and practical issues arising. I have also served as an external examiner and adviser on examination and curriculum matters to several UK and overseas universities. Following an ACCA commendation for the quality of my firm's audit work I served as the only ACCA nominee to provide independent auditing compliance advice to ACCA practitioners in North West England and I have served as the chairman of a series of CPD conferences for ACCA practitioners in that region.

I also serve as a consultant on applied auditing issues, to the Association of International Accountants (AIA) ; and have carried out various sole and committee tasks and assignments for it's executive in this respect. In  2016 I carried  out   a first  stage  research  project for the  AIA , ahead  of  the introduction  of the Association's  new professional  examinations scheme  to be introduced  in 2019. The project  involved  benchmarking  the  content of the  current   examinations scheme against  International  Education  Standards,  and benchmarking  the  scheme , alongwith the   AIA's examination  regulations and  infrastructures against those  of  the major UK  professional accountancy bodies and    the  accounting  degree  programmes  at two  UK  universities. I  continue to be retained as an adviser  to  the  AIA  on the  development   of the  structure  and content of its new   examination scheme. More recently, I have been engaged in consulting activities with two practising firms. I am enthusiastic about teaching undergraduate, postgraduate and professional course students, and ensure that students' experience is enhanced by integrating into my teaching the extensive practical knowledge obtained in my practising career to date. Teaching interests - international auditing and assurance - taxation. - forensic accounting - financial accounting I also enjoy developing contemporary accountancy and corporate governance courses of study that are particularly relevant to students wishing to pursue a career in professional practice.
