What you will learn

By the end of this event the attendee should have the following competencies:  

    • The ability to demonstrate professional behaviour and have a positive impact on one’s profession and the community at large.  
    • Have an understanding of key concepts associated with citizenship such as ethics, the law, regulation, professionalism, rights, and responsibilities. 
    • Appreciate the meaning of good citizenship in general, and why it is something to be aspired to by every professional. 
    • Demonstrate professional behaviour in personal branding and business etiquette.
    • Have a deeper and more focused commitment to serve the public interest. 


Accountancy operates within a context just like any other profession. There is a mindset that associates the career with prosperity and financial stability, and which tends to focus on self – how the personal interests can be served by the profession, rather than what self can do for the profession.

This webinar seeks to present the case for a world view where accounting professionals give rather than just take from society. It seeks to promote a world view that argues for a more sustainable mindset which focuses on serving by using financial skills to create a better world and, in the process, leave a more enduring legacy centred on protecting the public interest. When there is purpose attached to work, life takes on more meaning, and meaning serves for happier and more fulfilled professionals.
