As advanced technology continues to change the world of work, the need for professionals with highly developed “human” (aka soft) skills continues to grow. In the CPA Professional Education Program, these leadership, problem-solving, and communications skills are referred to as the “enabling competencies,” and it’s expected that CPAs who excel in developing these competencies will be highly sought after now and in the future.
To discuss the skills needed for 2020 and beyond, CPABC’s student recruitment and employer relations team hosted its second annual Connect Panel on February 27 at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver. More than 200 CPA members, candidates, prospective students, and employment partners from various sectors attended the event to gain insights from a panel of senior business leaders.
The event concluded with a networking reception where participants had the chance to dive deeper into the discussion with peers and local business leaders.
