One of Bedrock Tax’s Directors, Lisa Topliss, who is also the owner of the Ilkeston-based business, has been shortlisted for the inaugural Women in Accountancy and Finance Awards 2020 which showcases the achievements of women in practice, business and the third sector.
Lisa has been shortlisted for the Woman of the Year – Non-CCAB qualified category. The winners will be announced at the prestigious awards dinner which takes place on 6 May at the Hilton London Bankside.
Lisa said: “I’m delighted to have got this far in the Women in Accountancy and Finance Awards 2020. I had an unconventional career path via EY, Deloitte and PKF while playing international Netball for England rather than the typical university degree before establishing Bedrock Tax.
“I believe my career route has made me a more rounded individual with a broader skill set than just those based on technical knowledge or academic achievements which is a huge benefit when working with business owners and their accountants. I’m delighted to have that recognised by these awards.”
The judges are drawn from across the accountancy and finance sector, from Big 4 through to regional accountancy practices and professional bodies such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
The awards are intended to honour the inspiring achievements of women across all segments of accountancy and will also help shape the discussion around how diversity can be improved within the sector as some of the most the most forward-thinking initiatives are highlighted.
