TSCA Netwalking

Join TSCA for a 5 mile ‘walk whilst you talk’ in our first Netwalking event.

Netwalking - NorthernHopefully the late British Summer will be kind to us, as we enjoy the views from the Osmotherly/Swainby circular walk, whilst conserving enough energy to relax and network with fellow ICAEW members, and let’s not forget the option of a cold beverage after we finish the route.

Join TSCA members, friends and family for a social walk followed by some refreshments.

Walkers should wear/bring appropriate clothing (cool / warm / waterproof) it is British summertime so anything could happen.

Prior Pursglove College students win Teesside BASE heat

Business-savvy students from Prior Pursglove College beat off competition from 10 other local teams to win the Teesside heat of ICAEW’s National Business and Accounting competition, BASE on 25 March 2015. 

Prior Pursglove win Teesside ICAEW BASE - Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

Winning students from Prior Pursglove College Guisborough with their mentor Penny Simpson and Rob Tindle, Deputy President, Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough impressed the judges in the heat held at Durham University’s Queen’s Campus, Stockton-on-Tees and will go on to represent the north east at the national final which takes place in Birmingham in June.

This was one of 46 heats attracting over 3,000 students in more than 500 competing teams nationwide.

BASE links schools, students and employers to develop employability skills and provide an insight into what a career in accountancy, business and finance might be like.

Assuming the role of ICAEW Chartered Accountants, the students had 2 hours to analyse a business situation, before presenting their ideas to a panel of top business professionals. The students completed the competition under their own direction but each team was also supported by a member of Northern Society of Chartered Accountants who acted as their mentor.

Keith Proudfoot, ICAEW Regional Director Northern & Scotland, said: “We were really impressed with the team’s performance and shrewd thinking. These budding business advisers looked beyond the numbers, and demonstrated an excellent instinct for business and, importantly ethics, to give well-rounded advice. I suspect I’ll be seeing more of these young people in leading roles in the future.”

Head judge Rob Tindle, Deputy President from Northern Society of Chartered Accountants (NorSCA) said: “In the presentations we looked for the ethical and financial data to support the decisions. Prior Pursglove College showed excellent teamwork and role allocation in delivering a very comprehensive recommendation. The team from Northallerton College were the runners up and all teams can be rightly proud of their achievements in dealing with a very challenging business challenge.”

The BASE competition was supported by local firms including Anderson Barrowcliff LLP, Evolution LLP, National Audit Office, PD Ports, ICAEW and Tindle’s Chartered Accountants who provided professional mentors and judges.

Tanni Grey-Thompson to speak at Northern Society Dinner

TGT-head-and-shouldersWe are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker at the 133nd Northern Society Annual Dinner on Friday 16 October 2015 will be Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE.

In Seoul in 1988, Tanni represented Great Britain and won her first Paralympic medal, the 400m bronze. Spinal surgery forced Tanni to take a year away from the track and incredibly, at the 1992 Barcelona Paralympics, she stormed to victory taking four gold medals in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 metres and a silver in the 4x100m relay.

The same year, she won her first of six London Wheelchair Marathons. Tanni won the 800 metres gold in the 1996 Atlanta Paralympics along with three silver medals in the 100, 200 and 400 metres. At the 2000 Sydney Paralympics, 31 year old Tanni returned with a vengeance, striking gold a fabulous four times in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 metres. In Athens 2004, aged 35, she takes first place in the 100 and 400 metres bringing her Paralympic gold medal tally to an astonishing eleven.

Her total Paralympic Medal tally is 11 gold, 4 silvers and 1 bronze.

In 2010 Tanni was appointed to the House of Lords, where she serves as a non party political crossbench peer.  Tanni took the title Baroness Grey-Thompson of Eaglescliffe in the County of Durham.  Tanni is a working peer and hopes to use her experience and knowledge to great effect in debates in the House.  She has most recently contributed in the Welfare Reform and Legal Aid Bill.

Look forward to a special evening this October – you don’t have to be a chartered accountant to enjoy the evening with us – our dinner is open to all. We would also love it if members would bring along their colleagues, clients and guests as well as their students and trainees to enjoy a memorable evening and a superb networking opportunity.

The Northern Society Annual Dinner is on Friday 16 October 2015 at the Civic Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne.

During the course of the evening we will hold a raffle to raise funds for the British Wheelchair Racing Association.
