Bob spoke to the room as colleague, mentor, friend and proud Chartered Accountant. Bob spoke on the reflections on the profession and his journey, noting the values a CA must continue to hold within their career and into retirement, advising everyone to continue to hold themselves accountable, continue learning, and most importantly, to be there for each other. A fitting bookend to a memorable afternoon.
