Sykes’ Way

TS WAS IMPRESSED with ICAEW practice chief Gill Sykes’ enthusiasm for the new Practice Centre.

The centre will be the ICAEW’s outlet and representative for smaller practices.
Sykes’ excitement for the project could best be summed up with her ‘out there’ reference to 80s culture.

Sykes explained that the centre won’t be able to perform miracles in its first few weeks.
She said it was totally different to Howard’s Way, where the businessmen would be sat around a boardroom one minute then show up at a newly-built boatyard
the next.

A good attempt Gill, definitely from left-field. But we would have preferred a reference to Dynasty, or even Crossroads.
