The role of an accountant now spans far wider than books and figures. Today's accountant is expected to be innovative, strategic and forward-thinking. In order to stay competitive in today's work environment, accountants must be equipped to advise on many issues besides numbers.

CPA Ireland Skillnet will run a series of full-day workshops addressing the many topics accountants today must be familiar with to in order to advise beyond numbers. Attendees will be better informed in such diverse areas as vision, marketing, HR issues, exporting, dealing with change and much more.

The Advising Beyond Numbers series will also be available online via live streaming. Live Streaming offers participants the option of viewing and participating in the workshops through a live link direct to their PC at home. So if you can't travel to the Dublin venue Live Streaming offers you the flexibility to participate from home! This option is increasingly popular among our members, as it allows you to fit the course into your busy schedule.
