ACCA upcoming lunch 2015

On Friday 25th September the annual ACCA Northern Countries lunch will take place at the Marriott in Gosforth. As proud sponsors of the ACCA lunch, we enjoy making the most of meeting friends, clients and connecting with the highest calibre of potential future candidates.

This year should incite similar passionate debate as James Ramsbotham (Chief Executive of the North East Chamber of Commerce) will discuss what the region's business sector will incur in the near future and plans for 2016. This is likely to include a discussion around the North East Automotive Alliance, the soon to be released fasted growing 50 businesses in the area and the NECC's submission to the Treasury's Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR), where suggestions on transport infrastructure investment, on energy generation, skills funding and immigration have been submitted.

Last week (17th September) the region celebrated in style with the NECC bicentenary dinner at the Cloisters of Durham Cathedral. This was the largest business dinner in the region's history and arguably the highest profile event in the North East's business calendar in 2015, while the ACCA is a more intimate event it will also be focused on what challenges the North East business sector faces. The event brings together a mix of the best practice accountants, accountant working in industry and ACCA trained professionals who have use their qualification in other roles too.

Last year's key note speech was delivered by Ian Swales acting MP for the Redcar Constituency, he is the only FCCA in the House of Commons. Interestingly he focused on the sometimes negative connotations with his constituency, particularly as this was around the time that Benefits Street Stockton was being broadcast, this was in the wider subject of 'Are corporate entities shouldering their fair share in our society.'

The ACCA accreditation boasts many benefits, members are able to work anywhere internationally as it has a world-class reputation and it offers great flexibility in career choice because it is not limited to one sector. The lunch always has a dynamic audience as a result and we look forward to networking with all attendees this Friday. This lunch is often Sellick Partnership's highlight of the year within Commerce and Industry networking events.

Tickets are only £25 and are still available. Please go to to book your place now.
