Podcast : Richard Anning of the ICAEW

One of the upsides of locating our UK office a stone’s throw across the road from the ICAEW meant that on Monday I was able to grab thirty minutes with Richard Anning, head of the Institute’s IT Faculty. With a membership of more than 130,000 accountants, the ICAEW is by far the UK’s largest professional body for the accountancy profession.

Notwithstanding Richard’s graciousness in tolerating my rookie-podcast-host style of interviewing, we clambered over a range of topics from general technology trends in accounting, information security, changes in attitudes among accountants towards the adoption of cloud technologies, and whether accountants will ever get over their love affair with spreadsheets.

You can listen to the podcast free now in the iTunes store.

Thanks to Richard for trusting me in agreeing to be my crash test dummy.

It was a pleasure to work with you on this and see how easy it is to create. Now I need to find a volunteer to be my crash dummy!
