Zachary Hayes


Financial Planning and Graduate Diploma of Chartered Accountancy


I feel very fortunate to have received a scholarship from the Pinnacle Foundation as it will allow me to focus on establishing my career and also focus on my post graduate studies with little financial strain for my upfront education fees. Having a mentor from the industry to offer support and guidance to help me stay focused in what will be my most challenging but exciting year, not only academically but personally, and in my career is a comfort I wasn’t sure i would achieve. Having a mentor to discuss strategies in dealing with work/study loads, career goals whilst finding time for myself and my partner is going to be an enormous help and something I am very grateful for.
Pinnacle is truly an inspirational group offering a network to a community of people who are often in need of support particularly at this young adult stage of life & i can only hope that one day in the near future I can join as a mentor and offer the same help and support they will give myself as a scholar in 2016.
