Winner: Lorraine Taylor

Lorraine Taylor, who is head of organisation learning, global support
functions & UK, Europe and Americas at Standard Chartered Bank, has been
given ACCA’s 2007 Achievement Award for her tireless commitment to the cause of
professional training and development.

She is global head of learning for all the bank’s support functions including
finance, human resources, legal and compliance, and corporate affairs. Lorraine
also heads up the region of UK, Europe and the Americas, and is responsible for
driving forward learning across all functions in many countries.

Earlier in 2007, Standard Chartered launched a new online platform called
Learning@SCB to promote a learning culture across the bank.

The aim is to empower individuals to develop and drive their own learning
plans – covering personal, technical and management skills – and leverage the
range of options open to them.

Lorraine is keen that staff realise that training is not just about going on
courses, but about exploring a variety of ways in which to develop
professionally. Standard Chartered, which has a global network in more than 50
countries, has been given accreditation by ACCA for the quality of its
Continuing Professional Development programmes. The Bank has also received a
study support accreditation for its international graduate programme, where all
those joining the finance function will study for the ACCA qualification.

The dedication shown by Lorraine and her colleagues to the cause of
excellence in training provision is mirrored by ACCA’s own commitment, both to
students in terms of the major relaunch of its professional qualification in
2007 and to its members via the global career development programme.

Lorraine, by her work at Standard Chartered, is a perfect illustration of
ACCA’s values of providing opportunity and is a worthy winner of its Achievement
Award.’
