Just read this on Linkedin

"Very privileged to be a member of the judging panel for the Accounting Technician of the Year category of the North East Accountancy Awards 2022"

 

can you imagine actually finding yourself writing that.  You'd pause then think oh my effing God is this where it all ended up? You'd reach for the old service revolver your grandpa never handed in, put it to work and there;d be a click. You're an accountant not a soldier and you don't have access to ammunition.  Back to the judging.

Heh.  Reminds me of the very senior head of my team back in the death star.  He was trying to convince a fourth seater to qual into our team not tax  (team night out, fredericks, upper st).

but Kevin, when you're at a party and you're hoping to chat up the prettiest gal there, who do you think she is going to go home with: the specky tax lawyer, or the leading restructuring lawyer?  Whaddaya think lad

sounds like a shyt party, probably the waiter

WFH made people forget what they sound like.  Covid accelerated LinkedIns move to a Facebook for people who don’t realise how absurd they sound.  It’s a toxic, fantastically comic, combination,

Not sure that one is true Muttley. Sounds made up. I've been on a couple of judging panels and for obvious tampering reasons they tell you not to say anything until the end.

I like the toxic postings when they indirectly criticise last firm. Have to be sufficiently indirect not to be sued but enough to understand who they getting at.

 

 

That's AAT I think, sort of like legal exec for beancounters so yeh bossing the NE at it would be a reasonable achievement. Not really sure how you judge it mind.

Best use of a pocket protector in a short sleeved drip dry shirt?

Pointiest fashion work shoes north of the Tyne?

  • I can't tell the difference between Chambers and AnnaCis13 anymore.
  • Both seem to just focus on outing.

I actually think reposting this shite elsewhere to mock it is far, far worse than posting it in the first place.

Imagine being the sort of khunt who goes on linkedin

*Imagine being the sort of khunt who goes on linkedin searching out genuine posts by people who are rightly proud of their own achievements just to sneer at them behind their backs.

With amit on this one. We all know you are very accomplished, Muttley. A bit of grace wouldn’t go amiss.

"We all know you are very accomplished, Muttley"

A nice guy? Clever guy? Talented at what he does? No doubt.

But has he really been successful and, if not, was this a product of the niche in which he caved out for himself? I see a lot of people like him who don't ascend to where they could have done had they chosen a different practice area. Typically they end up in-house.

Problem is investigations never took off like people hoped, it's a small dead end area with incompetent regulators who don't prosecute or prosecute so badly it gets thrown out, which doesn't create the necessary fear affect. You have 20-30 credible partners in the market, tiny.

And with litigation the relationships are institutional financial institutions - so you have to go to a UK firm or a boutique and build relationships internally. Very political and big letterbox reputation, despite the majority of the intellectual horsepower of any law firm being based in those teams.

"Not sure that one is true Muttley. Sounds made up. I've been on a couple of judging panels and for obvious tampering reasons they tell you not to say anything until the end."

Wtf are you wittering about?

Even aside from spectacularly missing the OP's point, this is clearly untrue. Every awards ceremony ever announces the judging panel for reasons of transperacy.
