10 Worth Watching: Women Who Inspire A Profession

Wow.  This was a lovely surprise.

‘A girl with a Mac Book’

Francine McKenna doesn’t call herself a journalist, but her blog seems to belie that claim. Since 2006, McKenna has been the mastermind and managing editor behind re: The Auditors, a blog that covers the regulation and globalization of Big Four audit firms, and has garnered much attention for her investigative writing, insight and watchdog sensibility…

The rest of the list, all great women I am honored to be honored with, is here at WebCPA.com.

    Congrats, well deserved!

    I enjoy your blog (and visits with you at conferences and events) because, like the other honorees on the WebCPA list, you have a great deal of experience from which you observed the audit profession, have a great pipeline of contacts in the audit profession who confide in you publicly and privately, and are an extremely interesting writer and personality!

    Additionally, unlike most if not all of the other honorees, you have the advantage of being ‘opinionated’ in your blog and other public forums; people may not always agree with your opinion, but it is interesting and always thought-provoking to read or hear. (Looking forward to seeing you among the other press covering FEI’s CFRI conference in November!)

    You may be the Abe Briloff of the online generation, that’s no easy job, not everyone would want it. But kudo’s on your award and best wishes in your continued success [when is the book coming 🙂 ?]

    Thanks. I could not have done any of this without you. You have provided enormous support, both literally and figuratively.

    I’m looking forward to seeing you, too, in NYC in November.

    As far as the book, I think I have some ideas for making sure the content is as relevant today as I thought it was when I started this in 2006. The events are a moving target, but the underlying themes have not changed, sadly.
