Aspire ACCA Student Leads Campaign In Europe

Yvonne Amponsah, 28, has been selected to be part of a new campaign by Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) titled Aspire to Lead which has been designed to showcase the best young finance talents across the world.

Aspire to Lead was launched in March 2015 with an advertising campaign in London.

Having gained ACCA membership with first time passes in July 2013, Yvonne was nominated for the ACCA Leaders of Tomorrow (LoT) programme in January the following year and subsequently chosen as one of only five young professionals to promote the Aspire to Lead campaign.

The Leaders of Tomorrow programme is for 20 outstanding ACCA professionals selected from a large pool of nominations across the UK.

The ACCA professionals showed potential to become top finance leaders and chief executives of FTSE 100 companies.

Yvonne currently works as a Senior Internal Control Analyst with Cummins Limited, UK.

Her previous roles included Financial Analyst for EMEA markets and Financial Analyst for production plant operations.

Yvonne gained First Class honours in Accounting and Finance from the University of Glamorgan in Wales, UK in 2010 for her bachelor’s degree, where she was the Valedictorian.

At university, she won an award for Overall Best Performance each year and also received awards from Grant Thornton and The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.

She attended the Ghana Christian International High School (SHS) and Ridge Church School in Accra for JHS and primary education.

Currently, billboards around London train stations and universities across the UK are being used to market the Aspire to Lead campaign.

It is also being promoted in social media and newspapers.

A video also features Yvonne and the other ‘leaders.’
