AGM explanatory note to members


The election candidates

Sarah Palmer FIAB

Sarah has been running her own practice, Women Who Count Ltd, since 2009 and has been a member of the IAB since 2012. Prior to this Sarah has run several other businesses, in both the service and retail sectors. This, coupled with her upbringing in a family business, has shaped her belief that bookkeepers are the best-placed professionals to empower business owners around their day-to-day finances.

In 2012, Sarah became the UK licence holder for Pure Bookkeeping, an AU franchise that supports bookkeepers to develop their own practices. Having worked with bookkeepers overseas Sarah is keen to take this invaluable experience and help members to develop their own practices so more business owners are able to benefit from the service bookkeepers provide.

Sarah also writes her popular column for the IAB publications, called The Word from Sarah, which focuses on issues within the industry. Sarah was short-listed and announced as runner-up for the KWIB 2019 (Kent Women In Business Awards) for Professional Development and Leadership and Management.

Frauke Golding FIAB

I became a member of the IAB in 2003, having qualified as Military Accountant with the Army where I attained the rank of WO2 in what used to be known as the Territorials (now known as the Reserves). I subsequently became a Fellow Member of the IAB in 2011. I have been an accountant in practice since 1983, but also had periods of employment as a management accountant, company secretary and finance director in a large variety of industries including fashion and manufacturing. My additional interests include e-retail and social networking. In 2015, I was awarded the IAB Award for Exceptional Services to the Bookkeeping & Accounting  Professions.

Nicky Davies FIAB

Hi, my name is Nicky Davies. I am the accounts tutor for Skills & Learning Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole and a bookkeeper, I have been a student/tutor for the last 30 years. During the last five years I have been lucky enough to have won the IAB gold centre award 4 times.

I have a significant knowledge base in teaching bookkeeping and would like to share what I have learned to help IAB and students to grow.
