He has been a prolific presenter and conference speaker for over 14 years and regularly authors articles on management topics for professional journals.

On becoming CIMA President, Aubrey Joachim said; “Now, more than ever, the overriding challenge for a global professional organisation such as CIMA is to remain relevant. As the only international professional accountancy body with a sole focus on business we have a unique relevance.

We must also ensure we take steps to build on our relevance to all our current and future stakeholders - members, employers, students, potential students and all those with whom the institute hopes to interact in the future, both in established and new markets.

Relevance in this context is being operationally efficient and effective and having a sleek governance framework that delivers results quickly.

I look forward to working with our dynamic and visionary Council and management team to build on our success and lead our continuous program of change and improvement, for the benefit of our stakeholders globally.”
