What you will learn

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

    • Acting honestly with personal integrity, accountability and trustworthiness when interacting with others.
    • Have an analytical mind that understands the interrelationship between governance, ethics, work values and the law.
    • Understand how ethical leadership impacts business and corporate culture. 
    • Have a strong appreciation of the core concepts of the accountant’s Code of Professional Conduct. 
    • Identify and work through ethical dilemmas through the use of a variety of models that apply ethics-based reasoning.  


Being an accountant in today’s environment is a challenge! Our clients are faced with many dilemmas and temptations to stray off the right path as they try to survive in these difficult times. 

We have a huge responsibility to our clients, the profession and ourselves to be held accountable to the highest ethical standards and to instil trust and respect for our advice and guidance. These ideas flow and develop from the personal space, to how we conduct our business and are mantled by our professional responsibilities in terms of the respective professional body’s Code of Professional Conduct.  

This session is designed to give you space to reflect on your own personal journey, and consider what you are striving for during these difficult times, as well as what you won’t tolerate. Who we are as a person is not separate from who we are as a professional – a concept to be explored during this session.
