I ended my hectic and slightly schizophrenic day at the North Eastern Region CIPFA Conference at the Park Inn , York...

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) is one of the leading professional accountancy bodies in the UK and the only one which specialises in the public sector. It is responsible for the education and training of professional accountants and for their regulation through the setting and monitoring of professional standards. Uniquely among the professional accountancy bodies in the UK, CIPFA has responsibility for setting accounting standards for a significant part of the economy, namely local government. CIPFA’s members work, often at the most senior levels, in public service bodies, in the national audit agencies and major accountancy firms. They are respected throughout for their high technical and ethical standards, and professional integrity. CIPFA also provides a range of high quality advisory, information and training and consultancy services to public service organisations.

I had been asked to talk to around 80 accountants about 'Building brilliant learning organisations and releasing the potential of your team!' I don't know what you call a collection of accountants but they were a brilliant audience and the feedback was great.
