In a time when trust and transparency in business are in short supply, there’s one leader working tirelessly to ensure our next generation of financial leaders are forward thinking, measured risk takers who operate ethically, transparently and with integrity. Minds Worth Meeting speaks with Jeff Thomson, CMA, CSCA, CAE, President and CEO of IMA (Institute of Management Accountants) about the future of the profession, globalization and the importance of partnerships to expand opportunities for everyone worldwide.

True to his objective, Jeff advocates for offering leadership opportunities for a diverse set of stakeholders and partners including NABA (National Association of Black Accountants), ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), Robert Half International, COSO (Committee of Sponsoring Organizations), IFAC (International Federation of Accountants), and IIRC (International Integrated Reporting Council). Through these partnerships, Jeff and IMA are able to broaden the influence of IMA and participate in discussions affecting the global landscape of management accounting.

In this episode, you’ll also meet our guest host Tara Baumgarten!
