He is one of two candidates for the role, the other being Martin Eadon, who serves on the firm’s executive committee.City A.M. understands Deloitte is about halfway through the recruitment process with Connolly’s successor due to be announced at the end of the month. The recruitment process sees the board taking “soundings” from its 700 partners over potential candidates for the role. That stage has been completed and both Sproul and Eadon must now make presentations to the board before a final vote of the firm’s partners takes place later in the month.Connolly is due to step down in May having served three terms as chief executive over more than a decade. The firm is now second only to PricewaterhouseCoopers in terms of the revenue it generates and Connolly is credited with having transformed the fortunes of firm since becoming chief executive in 1998 tripling profits during his tenure.He is currently Britain’s best-paid accountant with a remuneration deal worth around £5m annually.Sproul joined Deloitte in 2002 becoming managing partner for the firm’s advisory and consultancy practice after its take over of Arthur Anderson. He later became managing partner for talent before becoming UK head of tax in 2006. He also serves as Deloitte’s managing partner for tax in Europe, the Middle East and Africa for parent company Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.Eadon is a managing director of Deloitte UK and a member of the Deloitte UK executive and board as well as a member of the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu executive. He has been with Deloitte since 1980 and is a member of the UK Financial Reporting Review Panel.DAVID SPROULHEAD OF UK TAX DELOITTEDavid Sproul 51, has had a career spanning 30 years, starting at a small accountancy firm, Hays Allan, where he worked for four years before joining Arthur Andersen. He spent a large part of his career at Anderson, where he eventually led the firm’s UK Tax practice and then became managing partner of operations. In 2002, Andersen was taken over by Deloitte with Sproul, who was by now second in command at the troubled firm, in the unenviable position of having to tell some 1,500 of the firm’s employees their jobs were at risk ahead of the takeover.Later that year, he became managing partner for consulting and advisory services in the newly enlarged Deloitte UK, leading the consulting and financial advisory practice for two years before becoming head of talent and managing partner for tax in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). In his role as head of tax for the EMEA region, Sproul helped launch an international tax centre of excellence in Dubai last year.Sproul’s position as one of the leading corporate tax specialists in the UK has added weight to the debate on the reform of the UK tax system, especially in terms of encouraging multinational businesses to remain in the UK. He has been quoted in the past as saying: “If you stand back and look at the UK economy, then it can’t be a good thing if the tax system is encouraging UK companies to leave, or non-UK companies not to establish in the UK.” whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Business community BBX UK launches Sparetember to benefit charities

first_img Business community tool BBX UK is running an initiative to generate funds for charities through its network this September.Sparetember will be a month-long campaign where businesses can donate goods and services through the platform to benefit charities.Businesses on the BBX platform trade with one another using BBX Pounds to order supplies or services for their business. Throughout Sparetember, businesses on BBX are invited to donate their spare capacity to help charities across the UK. This could be anything from unsold hotel rooms and magazine advertising space to unsold hours for a bookkeeper. When a company donates spare capacity, the stock will be sold within the BBX network with the funds generated from the sale donated to charities. Charities will be allocated a BBX Account Manager who will work closely with them and help them to source goods and services they require through the network, such as marketing support, infrastructure for events, accounting and finance support, to spend their donated BBX Pounds on.Those involved in the initiative include Dorset Blind Association, Diverse Abilities, Shark Trust, NSPCC, YMCA Exeter, Impact, Lincs2Nepal, Decision Time Ministries and Sports 4 Wellbeing.BBX UK was inspired to launch the fundraising initiative by the positive responses other month-long charity campaigns such as Movember and Stoptober have received in recent years.John Attridge, Founder and CEO of BBX, commented:“We are excited to be launching this initiative, utilising our business community for a such a great cause. We want to give back and support charities that support us by being a part of BBX. It’s also a great way for businesses on BBX to enhance their CSR initiatives as well as providing a feel-good factor. We don’t want other charities to miss out, so we are welcoming charities that aren’t already on BBX to sign up in time for Sparetember.”More information is available online and charities wishing to sign up to Sparetember can contact 03334 002014.

Philly officials act to limit DNC protests

first_imgJune 13 – Politicians and police in Philadelphia — the so-called “Cradle of Democracy” — appear to be working overtime to limit, discourage and intimidate demonstrators from gathering and speaking out during the Democratic National Convention in July, despite the “right to assembly and free speech” supposedly guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.Of the dozen permit requests for rallies and marches submitted to the city, only five have been approved. Two are for marches by Food and Water Watch and by Global Zero for events on July 24, the day before the DNC formally starts. Three are for marches and a weeklong protest by supporters of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.It appears, however, that the city intends to prohibit marches during the actual convention, July 25 to July 28. A permit request from the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC) to march on July 25 from City Hall to the Wells Fargo Center, site of the convention, was denied.Cheri Honkala, leader of the group, said they will defy the police and march down Broad Street to the convention. PPEHRC’s march will highlight Philadelphia’s 26 percent rate of poverty, the lack of affordable health care and the homelessness that has gone unaddressed by the city, which is spending $43 million on security for the convention.Other groups also vow to be in the streets, with or without permits. Organizers for “Shut Down the DNC” activities on July 26 said their events will go ahead, including a people-of-color march in North Philadelphia led by the REAL (Racial, Economic and Legal) Justice Coalition, combining with a “Shut Down” rally at City Hall, and then a march to the convention itself at the Wells Fargo Center.The broad coalition of groups behind the “Shut Down” rally and march include REAL Justice, the MOVE organization, the International Action Center, the Black and Brown Workers Collective, the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Workers World Party, Comité Boricua Filadelfia-Camden (Philadelphia-Camden Boricua Committee), the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, Philadelphia Food Not Bombs – Affinity, the People’s Power Assemblies, the Philly South Asian Collective, Move to Amend and Penn SDS.Many event organizers have been involved in street protests against racism and police brutality during the past two years. Over 25 leaders of these actions have been arrested during protests, but to date none have been convicted.The “Shut Down the DNC” action is linked with a “Shut Down the RNC” protest against Trump scheduled for July 17 in Cleveland. Organizers say that both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump bring more racism, economic hardship and destructive wars.While Trump’s overt racism and dangerous attacks on Muslims and immigrants threaten the lives of people of color, Clinton’s policies have cost the lives of millions around the world. And during the Bill Clinton administration, Hillary Clinton defended laws the president promoted that resulted in the mass incarceration of millions of Black and Brown people.Mayor’s so-called ‘protest decriminalization’ billTrying to further discourage protests, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s office is also pushing through a special bill in the City Council prior to the DNC. The ordinance would penalize activities that commonly occur at protests as “civil offenses.” Police officials and lawyers for the city helped draft the bill.Trying to sugarcoat this bill, the Kenney administration is calling it a “protest decriminalization” bill in that it gives police the option to fine demonstrators $100 instead of arresting them on criminal charges. However, the bill omits a key provision of a Pennsylvania statute dealing with obstructing highways that civil rights attorneys have frequently used to defend clients’ First Amendment activities.The excluded clause reads: “No person shall be deemed guilty of an offense under this subsection solely because of a gathering of persons to hear him [sic] speak or otherwise communicate, or solely because of being a member of such a gathering.”Philadelphia civil rights attorney Lloyd Long III, called the ordinance a “roundup” clause that lets police take people into temporary custody to clear the streets and then justify their detainments by issuing tickets under the ordinance. Exactly how police would corral protesters to give out citations is not spelled out in the proposed law.Philadelphia Councilperson Helen Gym is seeking to amend the bill to include “an explicit protection for purely First Amendment activities.”While these citations would not become part of one’s permanent criminal record, for many workers and poor people the economic hardship they impose could discourage them from participating. Even under current city law, citations for so-called “nuisance offenses,” including disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, carrying an open container, blocking streets or failing to heed an order to disperse are leveled disproportionately against people of color.And demonstrators have little reason to trust Kenney. After campaigning on a platform of ending Philadelphia’s stop-and-frisk policy, upon taking office in January 2016, Kenney quickly reversed course to maintain this racist program implemented in 2009 by another Democratic mayor, Michael Nutter.Several lawsuits have challenged the way stop-and-frisk is used by police to disproportionately stop and often arrest Black and Brown people. Given the well documented legacy of racism within the Philadelphia Police Department there is no reason to assume Kenney’s new ordinance will be any different.Just in case they can’t curb protesters’ First Amendment rights through new laws, the city is now talking about purchasing “law-enforcement liability insurance” to cover potential claims of police brutality and violations of other civil rights. Similar insurance purchased by Philadelphia prior to the 2000 RNC helped pay for lawsuits that resulted after more than 400 demonstrators were arrested and jailed for days.Lawrence Krasner, a civil rights attorney who defended many of those protesters, questioned spending tax money so that police have financial coverage when they deliberately violate civil rights. He commented, “In order to prove a civil rights violation, you have to prove deliberate indifference to the rights of others. To me, this is profoundly offensive.” (newsworks.org, June 8)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders calls for reopening of Daily News print works

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders has strongly condemned the actions of Zimbabwe police who sealed the print works of The Daily News on 19 December to thwart attempts to resume publishing after a judge lifted a ban on the paper earlier in the day.”The Zimbabwe authorities are determined to gag The Daily News at all costs. Police intervention at the print works had the sole aim of preventing a judgement given in favour of the newspaper being applied,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of Reporters Without Borders. “We urge the authorities to allow The Daily News and its print works to operate freely in line with the court ruling,” he added.The Bulawayo administrative court, presided by Judge Selo Nare, had ruled that the privately-owned newspaper could resume publication.As soon as the decision was announced, the president of the Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe (ANZ) that publishes the newspaper, said that the group’s printing press was already rolling and that an edition of the newspaper would be “on the streets of Harare from today.”On 11 September, the Supreme Court declared the Daily News illegal because it was not registered by the media and information commission as required by the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA). The ANZ had refused to register the newspaper because it contested the constitutional standing of the AIPPA.Police put the ruling into effect and closed the newspaper on 12 September, locking the premises. A few days later the security forces seized without warrant dozens of computers belonging to ANZ. Between the end of September and the end of October some 50 journalists and executives of the Daily News were charged with illegally practising their profession.

Like the old adage says, ‘Feed a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you’ll feed him for life.’ When a kid enjoys fishing, it can provide a lifetime of enjoyment.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Sponsored Content Kid Fishing Day Saturday at Clay Hill Farms By The Penny Hoarder Email the author By Jaine Treadwell Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits What better way for a father to spend time with his children on Father’s Day weekend than to take them fishing?And there will be no better fishing anywhere this weekend than at Clay Hill Farms.Each year, John Dorrill hosts Pike County Kids’ Fishing Day at his catfish pond at Clay Hill Farms and, as always, the fishing will be good, said Blake Nowling, Pike County conservation officer.

All children must be accompanied by a parent or a responsible adult.“Each kid should bring a hat and sunglasses because it’s going to be hot,” Nowling said. “Everyone that fishes will need a rod and reel or fishing pole and bait. Chicken livers are good bait for catfish, but they are kind of hard for kids to handle because they can fly off when they cast. Shrimp is good bait and so are worms.
