CNBC Dialogue Series
CIMA Africa has established an exciting initiative together with CNBC Africa, to bring management accounting to 46 countries across Africa.
Hosted by one of CNBC Africa’s top financial journalists, David Williams, the CIMA Dialogue series, will be broadcasted in four parts through 2014. Each episode will address a different management accounting practice and will count towards CPD.
The first episode, aired on 29 April, addressed the launch of the consultation phase of the Global Management Accounting Principles. It featured CIMA’s Executive Director of Education, Noel Tagoe; Musa Shabane, Corporate Executive for Stakeholder Relations at Tongaat Hulett; and Kevin Thomas, Senior Lecturer and Deputy Head of Department for Finance and Investment Management at University of Johannesburg. Senior members, both ACMAs and FCMAs, were invited to attend and be part of the programme as a studio audience.
The second episode, which will focus on Accounting for Natural Capital, will air on 26 July at 2pm CAT. As this is an extremely new concept in accounting, it is likely to be of great interest to members and students alike.
