Soon there’ll be the the Oscars. Sometimes truly great movies – and sometimes not – get the prestigious award.
I am thinking of our dear fellow Ganna Demidyuk*). She took part in a conference in Las Vegas with her paper about KPI’s in airline industry: Choosing Financial Key Performance Indicators: the Airline Industry Case.
Not to forget: a total of 800 participants from all over the world came to Las Vegas. Only about 17% of them were rewarded.
She got the “Outstanding research award” which gives an opportunity to publish in a reviewed journal, the “Journal of Accounting and Taxation“.
Ganna writes us about her tremendous experience:
This paper would be incomplete if it did not contain the fullest expression of my gratitude to Professor Dr. Hany Shawky, who has so generously given of his time and expertise; and not only with this paper but also throughout my PhD project. He has prompted and mentored my attempts to achieve a level of excellence with an open and gentle manner that created an environment for ideas to bear fruit and for me to believe in my own potential. His contribution has been invaluable and I thank him most sincerely!
I also greatly appreciate input made by Professor Dr. Bill Holstein during our last session.
Finally, I warmly thank Professor Dr. Keith N. Cleland for his sincere and fundamental participation.
