What is your view of transformation in the financial services space?
"As a truly 'transformed' business, Nexia SAB&T is acutely aware of the challenges that are faced in attaining transformation.

"Black Chartered Accountants barely represent 25% of the total number of local chartered accountants (there are approximately 40 000 registered chartered accountants in South Africa). Without concerted efforts by all stakeholders to make the field sexy to learners in high schools across all demographics and ensure quality education is provided to these, this is a statistic that will not change for the foreseeable future.

"Nexia SAB&T also won a gender transformation award at the Standard Bank Top Women Awards 2017 of which we are very proud."

What impact has becoming part of the Nexia International network had on the business?
"Nexia International is a highly active network that drives quality and facilitates collaboration to enable its member firms to provide effective local and global solutions. Nexia member firms deliver a partner-led service to clients which ensures continuity, expertise and a deep understanding of the client's business. Nexia member firms are characterised by people who have an entrepreneurial spirit. Nexia firms are focused on supporting local businesses as they grow and through the Nexia International network, they can also help their clients confidently venture into new international markets.

"Nexia International has in excess of 250 international member firms, comprising 651 offices globally in 115 countries with 2 123 partners and approaching 30 000 staff. Nexia International is one of the top 10 leading network of independent accounting and consulting firms, global. They provide various clients with the highest standards of national and international audit, accounting, tax, and advisory services in a cohesive, personalised and customised manner.

"Nexia SAB&T has truly embraced membership to the network in order to realise as many benefits for our clients as possible from our membership. This includes taking on positions on various international technical committees and extends to our CEO, Bashier Adam, having been appointed as the Chair of the EMEA region.

"Membership of these committees means that Nexia SAB&T does not just benefit from first-hand access to the wealth of knowledge being shared and latest developments, but also gets to drive the South African agenda across all forums.

"Nexia SAB&T has also benefited from on-the-job knowledge sharing having seconded our staff to conduct work for large multinationals like: MasterCard, Toys 'R Us, Computer Associates, across Europe, Africa and the US."
