Kelly Chan
financial controller
Moët Hennessey Diageo Hong Kong Ltd

Kelly decided to pursue her career in accountancy because she felt the accounting industry was practical and of value to businesses. She also felt it would provide her with great opportunities for career development and international travel.

Asked why she decided on the ACCA Qualification as her preferred option, Chan says, 'It was because ACCA offers a well-established exam scheme and has an outstanding global reputation.'

Chan found studying for the qualification and working at the same time quite challenging as her role involved a lot of travel, but says 'the qualification offers a reliable professional status within the industry, both at a local level and internationally,' which makes all her hard work worthwhile.

'Being equipped with the ACCA Qualification accelerates the growth in your career. It provides you with a solid technical foundation, international mobility and the highest ethical standards.'
