Celebrating the best in the business

We know that working hard is very important if you want to achieve success, especially when it comes to exams. And for those serious about a career in accountancy, the end of exams simply signals the beginning of a new era of hard work – just of a different type. And while at Reed Business School we’re well used to celebrating the success of our students who pass their exams (often with some of the best marks in the country), it’s also good to step back occasionally and celebrate the success of fully-fledged professionals within the industry, and the firms they work for.

On that note, the British Accountancy Awards 2018 took place last week, which saw 800 guests (including some of our clients and former students) come together to celebrate excellence, professionalism, and innovation in accountancy. It was a fantastic night, filling us with lots of excitement about the future of our profession.

We’d like to publicly add our congratulations to all those shortlisted for an award, and to those who won on the night. And in case you haven’t seen it elsewhere, here is the full list of winners:
