Welcome back to issue 20 of Curated by Accountants.
I’m excited to announce I’ve joined the faculty at Karbon Academy. This is like a mini MBA, built from the ground up to equip accountants with the tools, advice and support they need. Experts and practitioners have not only helped put together the curriculum, but they are actually delivering it.
