"I am excited to bring together such a diverse group of education experts from around the world for the inaugural ACCA Education Global Forum," said Maggie McGhee, ACCA Director, Professional Insights.

"The aim of the Forum is to develop cutting edge understanding of the issues affecting global accounting education, and I hope to use the content of our discussions as a basis for further research and to inform the way we develop and deliver educational products here at ACCA."

ACCA Global Forums were created to contribute to ACCA's technical and research work on issues facing business and the accountancy profession.
