 Chester and North Wales Society – perspective and the future
T
he Chester and North Wales Society of Chartered Accountants is a branch of the Liverpool Society of
talent into accountancy.
In the Chester and North Wales area we
are fortunate to have an excellent forum in the Town Group, which has been meeting for many years to discuss common issues faced by local firms in matters of recruitment and retention
of staff, technical issues and the changing expectations of our clients.
My predecessor as Chair of the Chester and North Wales Society, Jonathan Jones of Henry R Davis & Co in Deeside, was instrumental in setting up the Pan-Professional Group. This brings together accountants, members of
the Law Society, the Insurance Institute and
the Association of Property Professionals for informal networking alongside informative CPD sessions. Our first session, delivered by Doug Strycharczyk of AQR International, was on Mental Toughness and Resilience, exploring
why people respond the way they do and how that impacts on interactions and performance in the workplace. Our next session will be delivered by artistic director, Alex Clifton, of the Storyhouse Theatre in Chester, who will be giving us tips on how to build confidence in public speaking.
As part of the Liverpool Society we will continue to encourage our members to share their experiences and concerns with other professionals, both accountants and the wider professional network, to ensure that we constantly adapt and change as Chartered Accountants and continue to have a positive influence on the economic marketplace.

150TH COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
    Chartered Accountants and whilst we operate independently of the Liverpool Society we work very closely together.
My goal as chair has been to encourage more of our membership to get involved with the local Society, to take advantage
of the numerous technical and social events organised by both Societies and also, to participate in the 150th anniversary celebrations of our Liverpool Society.
An important part of the Society is to consider what the future of the profession looks like for our members in this fast moving digital age where client demands are ever increasing and diversifying and to consider how we can continue to attract and retain a pipeline of
