The Smith Family says thankyou...

As part of our philanthropic program at AC, instead of sending out cards to our valued clients during Christmas 2014, we made a donation to The Smith Family Christmas Appeal. Here was their response:

Dear Maree, Megan and the AC team.

Thank you for empowering disadvantaged Australian students to make the most of their education. University graduate Emma was in Year 10 and took part in our online mentoring program iTrack. Guidance from a mentor encouraged Emma to finish school and understand her possible career pathways.

"Nobody I knew - not a family friend or distant relative - had been to university....students like me need to be inspired and have role models", says Emma, who is now a lawyer.

Donations give disadvantaged students access to our proven learning programs throughout their education. Combined with financial assistance from Smith Family sponsors to pay for education costs, students receive the wrap-around support to break the cycle of disadvantage.

"On the back of a long term relationship with our business spanning more than 10 years, Maree has facilitated the placement of 2 senior people into our finance team over the last 12 months. In doing so, Maree has spent time deeply understanding the companies requirements and in doing so, has shortlisted quality candidates for discussion ensuring time was not wasted interviewing potential candidates clearly not aligned to what we were searching for. We have used the Accountancy Connect team extensively over the last 10 years and will continue to do so in the future."
