FIA Organises Leaders Conference

 

The Fiji Institute of Accountants (FIA) will be hosting a Leaders Conference at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva on October 14.

The theme for the conference is: “Leading Fiji into the Future: Responding to the new global economy” and this will be a whole day event.

There will be two types of sessions – one for executive management which will be in the morning and the afternoon session will be for the middle management.

FIA executive director, Navin Raaj, said this is the first time for the FIA to organise such an event.

“Traditionally FIA usually organised a Technical Workshop around such time in the calendar of activities,” he said.

The purpose of the conference is to provide FIA members with the ‘structured hours’ they require.

“This is also an opportunity for other delegates as well to enhance/upgrade professional skills and knowledge sharing,” Mr Raaj said.

“We are hoping delegates utilise this conference in acquiring professional upgrading of knowledge and importantly to inspire them to implement the information presented back into their work forces.

“Professional Development through such events is critical in upgrading ones knowledge and keeping up not only with the contemporary issues but also in dealing with the future impacts globally.”

 

Speakers

The Attorney-General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, will be the chief guest for the event.

FIA is bringing in New Zealand Tax Leader, Peter Vial, who will be talking on the theme: “Tax in the future: Responding to the new global economy”.

FMF Foods Limited managing director, Ram Bajekal, will be speaking on the topic: “Looking in to Grow Out”.

The other speaker is Pure Magic International Business Solutions (Pty) Limited managing director, Caryn Walsh, from Australia.

Ms Walsh is also a columnist for the Fiji Sun.

The first theme she will be talking on is: “Buff ‘em, Polish ‘em, Shine ‘em. Why Generation Y are like diamonds to your business”.

And then she will later speak on: “Grabbing the Reins with Passion and Purpose – What it will take for young leaders to successfully guide businesses into the future”.
