Webinar | Going Above & Beyond For Your Career


“In a period of rapid change and increasing complexity, the winners are going to be the people who can LEARN faster than the rate of CHANGE and faster than their COMPETITION”.   -Tom Hood, CPA, CITP, CGMA

If you haven’t realized yet, learning doesn’t stop with a degree or even with a CPA license. Continuous learning is a part of your career. In fact, Fast Company editor Robert Safian says “the most important skill is the ability to learn new skills.” With the pace of change, this skill has never been more important. Luckily, most organizations will train you in the things THEY think you should know. They will train you for your CURRENT job responsibilities. But it’s up to you to go above and beyond, learning outside of your current responsibilities, in order to grow and succeed in your career. In this presentation you will learn why it’s so important to learn outside and beyond the required “CPE” and some tools you can use to do it all while balancing everything else in your life.
