Practical jokers


The turn of the year sees a plethora of awards being dished out to the great and good in all walks of life. We at Accountancy Age like to get in early, so do ours at the start of November. But others have only just got going.

Which is why TS was sent a note from the ICAEW calling for final nominations for its outstanding achievement award. While we wouldn’t dream of getting involved in such things that could affect our, ahem, journalistic independence, we reckon someone out there may have a similarly wicked sense of humour.

Perhaps the nomination of FCA Charles Tilley would not go amiss. After all, as chief executive of rival institute CIMA, he managed to extricate his organisation from the proposed institute merger talks before the whole thing went spectacularly south.

Well done that man!
