What Chartered Accountants Ireland and similar bodies globally are doing to enhance and continue to improve their own education path
A view of education for accountants globally from the International Federation of Accountants
Discussion and Q&A Session:
We will take a discussion break for 12 minutes where we will allocate attendees to groups. When attendees arrive in the groups, they will be met by a group leader – one of our CAW Network USA executive team.
The groups will then discuss the key takeaways they have from the presentations and decide a few that are ‘most important’.
We will then reconvene in a plenary session and group leads will be asked to share the most important takeaways.
Then we will bring the speakers back for closing comments and questions.
