Anna Draper, Lead Partner, BDO South East

I am proud to be a member of the firm’s Leadership Team. A key part of my role is leading on Partner Engagement and Development. In addition, I am the sponsor of our BE INSPIRED programme which aims to improve gender balance within our firm. Until recently I was the Lead Partner of BDO in the South East, overseeing a 400 plus strong team of audit, tax and advisory professionals. One of the aspects of my role I enjoy most is supporting our many talented people, helping them to develop and achieve their potential. 

In addition, I am an Audit Partner specialising in large listed, private equity backed and privately owned international companies. 

Outside of my client work I have represented BDO on the ICAEW Corporate Governance Committee and the QCA Financial Reporting Group, and written articles on governance hot topics.
