Practice Vs Commerce: The Best Route to the Top

David Leithead 06.03.2014

How do you become a Finance Director? Is it better to climb the ladder in Commerce, or in Practice? At Morgan McKinley we think the best solution is to hear it from someone that has been there and done it!

We would like to invite you to our Success Series Event - Practice Vs Commerce: The Best Route to the Top in sponsorship with ACCA, where our three guest speakers will be talking through their routes to the top, their careers, how they got there and also as hiring managers what they look for in their teams. This is a great chance to get some honest, genuine and impartial advice.
