The November edition of AB includes extensive coverage of the outputs of the COP 26 climate change conference. Our daily articles from the event focused on the impact for professional accountants, including insights from ACCA members.

The main interview this month is with Charles Chan FCCA, a tax partner at PwC Hong Kong. He gives his views on how the accounting profession has gone through a myriad of changes and why professionals need to adapt, listen and learn.

Also this month, AB has launched a series of podcasts for small and medium-sized practitioners. The first episode looks at how to manage your team in a lockdown, with practical insights from practitioners in the UK (Chris Biggs) and India (Ajay Sethi). The second talks about how to differentiate your firm from the competition, with tips from practitioner Robert Belle FCCA in Kenya, and marketing consultant and regular AB contributor Jason Ball in the UK.

We also have a selection of articles that offer CPD units – about the recently announced sustainability standards and how to deal with anger in the workplace. More to come next month as we head towards the 31 December CPD deadline.
