The type of disruption that most Public Practice accounting firms are facing right now is a once-in-every-few-centuries event. Disruption today is more than just changes in technology landscape, the regulatory environment or the nature of competitors or customers — it’s all of them, all at once and it’s the new norm. These forces are completely reshaping the profession, the capabilities needed to keep pace and business models to stay competitive.

During this podcast series we'll be speaking to those responsible for the changing landscape as well as hear from experts and CA's who are harnessing the disruption to their benefit and gain inspiration from their journeys, a taste of what it takes to shape the practice of tomorrow.

    Community: You're Not Alone

    Community: You're Not Alone

    For this final episode, David Boyar focuses on something that makes Chartered Accountants stand together: community. Chartered Accountants’ work plays out in a similar fashion, and they can share experiences with each other because they know a fellow CA will understand.

    David is going to explore where your community is and how to be a part of it. Joining him is Lee Whitney, the Group Executive of Account Management and Strategic Planning of Chartered Accountant Australia and New Zealand.

    We'll then hear the story of Lance Rubin, a South African immigrant who used his CA to find his place in his new home, Australia, and to overcome his own conflict between getting value as a CA and finding his community.

    We hope you’ll enjoy this last episode of the series.

    We're going to learn about the foundational changes that have led to what an automated firm can do before hearing from Trent Innes from Xero and Caroline Wright from MYOB. But it's Australia’s Commissioner of Tax, Chris Jordan, who gives the greatest reason why we should adopt technology.
