As Maya Angelou wisely said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” This is the essence what practitioners need to keep at the front and centre of their thoughts. Ethics is a dynamic topic that needs us to keep checking in with ourselves, our thoughts, actions, values, and intentions to ensure that we continually strive to do better.

In recent times, the financial profession’s reputation has been challenged in the public space, requiring us to reflect on where we are, what we stand for and what we are prepared to tolerate and accept. The only way we can do this is to be aware of our own personal ethics, the ethics of organisations and clients and upholding our professional reputation and moral compass.

Ethical leadership is critical for good practice management, corporate governance, and role modelling to others that it is possible to do business in an ethical and sustainable way.

During this workshop, Caryn Maitland CA(SA) will provide case studies drawn from real-life situations involving accountants in business. These real-world examples deal with ethical fading, management integrity, financial reporting and disclosure issues, financial fraud, corporate crises, and the practitioners’ professional responsibility towards their client, the public and other reporting obligations.
