ACCA launches global economy microsite
Supporting members through the economic downturn
ACCA members now have the opportunity to share experiences and access personal support on dealing with the current economic situation through the launch of a dedicated new microsite.
Entitled Global economy: addressing the challenges, the microsite brings together existing analysis, resources, business strategy ideas and discussion boards giving ACCA members an opportunity to gain insight and share ideas on how to meet the current challenges and exploit the opportunities presented in 2009.
'The key issue with ACCA's new site is that it offers a reciprocal channel of communication,' said Richard Aitken-Davies, ACCA president. 'We are determined that, rather than just talking at our members about the current global economic situation, the new site will facilitate member collaboration by drawing on their own experiences and opinions. We have considerable expertise and thought leadership among our global membership who can offer support and insight into issues which will affect economies in different ways.
'It is also important to recognise that the economic situation is having an impact at all levels, which is why the microsite includes a support section which will point members in the direction of a range of internal and external resources that will offer not just business support, but emotional support and advice too.'
Coverage of past and future events around the global economy theme will also feature on the site, as will regular blogs by professional experts giving their thoughts and opinions on the latest issues.
