So many of our younger members are driving change and positively influencing the future of business, finance and politics with innovative ideas and sharp minds. They are raising the profile of ICAS around the world and we are extremely proud of them all.

“I would strongly urge my fellow CAs to nominate their colleagues and mentees for this accolade and I wish everyone entering the best of luck.”
