#ICAEWROAR Top Online UK Influencers

As per the ICAEW:

"We are delighted to announce our #ICAEWROAR Top Online UK Influencers project.

Regulatory changes, technological advances and economic pressures are changing the way business operates. This has created new opportunities and fresh challenges. Through campaigns such as Tomorrows Practice and Practice 2015, ICAEW have been working to foster discussion in our industry on how best to face these challenges.

There are those who have already seen this opportunity and taken a firm grasp. We wanted to discover these early adopters, not just to celebrate their work, but to see what can be learned from their experiences and bring new ideas to our industry.

Our brand values are imperative to the way we communicate, behave and position ourselves. We are bound by our Royal Charter to promote a manner in acting responsibly and behaving with integrity, throughout our industry and beyond into UK business. These values have formed the backbone of this ranking system and have informed the design of the algorithm we have written, and as such will ultimately decide who ranks in our inaugural event.

This algorithm we have developed in partnership with Pulsar, our social media intelligence platform partner, and will be using their TRAC platform to search and list the contenders.

For our very first #ICAEWROAR Top UK Online Influencers ranking we have chosen to concentrate on individuals using social media within the realms of accountancy. The winners, and all information on this inaugural event, will be revealed here.

We’d like to invite you to nominate contenders, or yourself, for this new crown."

Happy #InternationalAccountingDay

#‎InternationalAccountingDay‬ is the professional holiday of all accountants celebrated on November 10 every year.

The day goes back in history to year 1494, when book titled "Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita" (Everything About Arithmetic, Geometry and Proportion) was published in Venice. This was the first book that contained essay on double-entry bookkeeping and provided a base for other works on mercantile accounting.
