Rattled Alex on ABC the Business

Post by Chris Catto » Thu Jun 01, 2017 9:39 pm

Rattled Alex, can't get his member numbers right. Claims $12m for 25 new members is good use of funds and conveniently doesn't tell the interviewer that he uses legal threats as an intimidation tool against members and bans any new discussion on the CPA Constitution in CPA member forums.

To be fair, it was probably hard to remember under that much sweat!

Couldn't get his numbers right about memberships either.

Happy to be in Iceland, thank you very much Alex.

Was great to see you get a guernsey on TV as well Chris ;)

He's not doing anything for his own credibility. What a f___wit. Couldn't even answer a question of simple mathematics. Kept dodging and weaving.

In fact, that interview was an embarrassment... He's lucky that he wasn't being interviewed by Ticky Fullerton.

Time for Malley to GTFO.

What do we have to do?

As funny as that is don't actually send/have sent anything in the mail. Apparently he has received weird stuff in the mail. May be just email the pic. Seems to obviously upset him a bit that he cannot personally target each one of us. What do they need our names for?

Yeah if Alex really thinks he has overwhelming support that give us the email addresses. Member satisfaction is 6.0 out of 10 Alex (by your own biased numbers).

Alex lives in a parallel universe - seriously, his interview last night was the ramblings of a dictator in the dying days of his reign. It was full of lies and untruths, it just exposed him for the fake that he is.

It's time for change.

He's got 100 names on the 202B submission - I'm sure his band of henchmen will be working through that and looking for a way to make us "disappear".....

Will take your advice on the gift.

Clearly CPA Australia do not see Iceland as a potential source of membership growth.

I commend Elysse Morgan on ABC Business for maintaining her cool while Alex Malley just refused to answer her obvious question about why they brag about membership growth of 45,000 in the last four years when the numbers in the annual reports show an increase of just 16,000 or so.
I'm for Elysse Morgans type of accounting not the type of the current CEO of CPA Australia.

An alternate transcript of the interview...

Elysse: what's 160,000 minus 144,000?
Alex: CPA Australia has a 98.3% membership retention rate
Elysse: what's 160,000 minus 144,000?
Alex: we stand by our figures
Elysse: what's 160,000 minus 144,000?
Alex: we have recorded our membership numbers several different ways and we are comfortable with that reporting
Elysse: what's 160,000 minus 144,000?
Alex: we have achieved record surplus results
Elysse: are you sure you're an accountant?

It really grates me how Alex/CPA publications are trying to frame that we are a massive organisation. We are not, we are one of many industry specific not-for-profit bodies and small by company standards. We are the 1,525 largest company/organisation in Australia by revenue.

or 321st ranked Private company/organisation by revenue
