Regional Manager’s Update

Over the last month we have been celebrating another fantastic year of engagement with our members. It was definitely another hectic year as we delivered just over 70 local member events across South Australia and Northern Territory, with just under 4,000 members attending those events. Our celebrations have included those who actively engage on our member panels, contribute to our local member events, training programs and CA Program and our South Australian & Northern Territory Regional Council. These celebrations allow us to reflect on why we are Chartered Accountants – everything we do is for our members to be recognised as the trusted leaders in business and finance.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the profession this year. Regional Council and our various local member groups are here to represent the members and provide a voice for the members in the region. We acknowledge you all volunteer a considerable amount of time throughout the year in doing this for which we are truly grateful for.

I’d like to acknowledge the commitment and dedication of our 2017 Regional Chair, Nigel Stevenson. Thank you for volunteering your time this year in leading the Regional Council in delivering another stellar year of member engagement across South Australia & Northern Territory. Also, thank you for all the support and guidance you have provided to myself, the Adelaide Office team, Regional Council and the members this year.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018.

16th November Strategies for Success: Business & Performance Coaching

Nearly every business is looking to grow, either by the number of clients or the wallet share of each client. At the heart of this is how a business engages clients and then how they manage the clients once they are on the books.  

Over 40 members attended this one hour session that was specifically tailored for Young CA’s and based on a structure on how to engage and manage clients. Too often people go into meetings unprepared and unable to handle a client conversation to lead the client to taking up their services.
