Our latest monthly roundup features several perspectives on what 2022 might bring – for professional accountants generally and for members in Africa in particular. We also offer practical advice on how to mitigate rising indirect costs in an inflationary environment. 

We know this time of year can be challenging on personal as well as professional levels. Psychologists Dr Rob Yeung and Jess Baker offer insights, respectively, on how small-talk with colleagues can help lift your spirits, and how people pleasers can also help themselves

Our main interview this month is with Stavros Constantinou FCCA, finance director of Del Monte Kenya, who talks about how the agrifoods business is responding through innovation to the twin challenges of climate change and Covid-19. We also have an interview with new ACCA president Orla Collins. She explains why ethics and integrity will be among her key focuses during her year in office.

Finally, we have added another podcast to our series – the latest episode is on practical ways leaders can support staff in difficult times, on both personal and professional levels.
