ONLINE EVENT | Future of Business Series: Future of Professions NZ


Professions that leverage disruption will continue to make a difference into the 21st century. But they must ensure that their skills and expertise remain grounded on a solid foundation of ethics, trust and integrity. This 2 part webinar will deep dive into the recent thought leadership paper The 21st Century Profession and join experts discuss the current state of professions, and examine their strengths and weaknesses, and ask the question: "where to next"? What skills do professionals need to ensure they remain relevant in the future of work?




Session One: The changing role of the 21st Century Professional 
Date: Tuesday 22 September 

The rise of innovative technologies ranging from data analytics to the blockchain have changed the nature of work carried out by the professions. Most people have come across the often-repeated phrase that technology frees up professionals such as doctors, lawyers and accountants for more “value added work”. In this session our panel explores this claim, examining what it really means for the future of professions in the midst of rapidly increasing automation. What skills do professionals need to ensure they remain relevant in the future of work?

Session Two: Your professional qualification: a badge of ethics, trust and expertise 
Date: Thursday 15 October

Professions set themselves apart from other occupations through their commitment to an ethical code. A strong commitment to ethics, combined with business and finance expertise make Chartered Accountants amongst the most trusted professions. In the wake of the economic devastation caused by COVID-19, now more than ever Chartered Accountants are being called on as ethical and trusted advisors to create, protect and communicate value for organisations and society. Hear our panel of experts discuss the importance of ethics to your ‘brand’ as a Chartered Accountant, and practical tips on how to keep your badge shiny as you navigate the post COVID landscape.
