Anna Draper, Lead Partner, BDO South East

I am a Partner in BDO’s Audit and Assurance practice, and oversee the 370 plus strong team of audit, tax and advisory professionals in BDO South East. My clients are FTSE and AIM listed companies and multinational corporations. I particularly enjoy working with complex, global businesses across a variety of sectors, including retail, recruitment and manufacturing, taking the time to understand the risks and challenges faced by businesses across the world and sharing insights with the key stakeholders.

I help clients prepare for IPOs and have specific experience in the application of IFRS and handling international reporting, as well as AQR and QAD interactions.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my role is supporting our many talented people, helping them to develop and achieve their potential. As a working mum to two school age children, I am committed to mentoring talented women, giving them the tools they need to be successful professionally whilst managing the demands of family life.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and both playing and watching sport. I am an active member of Surbiton Hockey Club and particularly enjoy watching cricket and rugby.
