This month AB continues to look at post-pandemic recovery, including Asia-Pacific CEOs’ expectations for the economy this year, and the effect of inflation on public sector entities.

We hear from Mariam Riza FCCA, CEO at intergenerational inclusion experts Wattleshire, on why the secret to organisational success lies in embracing the diverse range of age groups in today’s workforce. And Jim Woods, chief digital officer at PwC in China, explains how technology is transforming the firm and creating software solutions to resolve clients’ issues.

We have practical guidance in the form of a case study from Marriott International on how to merge the tax and accounting functions, and also tips for looking after yourself during a life-changing career move.

Of particular interest to practitioners, we look at the impact of culture on audit – whether similar ancestral backgrounds between auditors and CFOs affect reporting outcomes.

In terms of CPD units on offer this month, you can read up on how IFRS 17 is changing the accounting for insurance contracts. And we continue our series of ‘fundamentals of IFRS’ with a video on IAS 40.
