"Mary Clarke was contracted by the professional accounting bodies to examine alternative models of oversight and governance of the Accounting Professional Year Program. Mary’s professionalism coupled with her ability to fully engage with the Program Providers enabled her to produce a well informed and extensive report. A number of the recommendations Mary made in the report have been taken up by the Committee or are on the project list. She is a pleasure to work with and I hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future."
