Over the next 12 months, Chartered Accountants Worldwide is convening a series of global discussions and debates.

The events will provide solutions for businesses to adapt their cultures and practices to navigate the changing economic, legislative, technological, generational and cultural environment.

The events will be hosted in major international markets, bringing together senior participants from the worlds of business and finance as well as representatives from tomorrow’s generation of leaders.

The inaugural event in Sydney, Australia which took place in September 2016, centred on the theme of trust, as this critical element is at the heart of the value chartered accountants bring to the business world.

The discussion considered how organisations can continue to thrive in an age of selfishness where individuals focus on themselves more than on the wider community. The challenge for employers is how to respond to these developments without compromising trust.

Future topics for discussion will look at the way technology is reshaping business and the role of leaders in building a culture of trust.

Over the course of 2016 and 2017, all member institutes of Chartered Accountants Worldwide will host a debate or event based on the theme of trust, and we will publish related content on these pages. Check back regularly to see more details.



Chartered Accountants Worldwide will discuss the role of the profession in tackling the UN global goals at an event in London on 22 May. Members from the 11 CAW bodies will provide their views on what the goal of the profession should be and how we can reach more accountants and therefore more businesses to start embedding the Goals


The Global Goals are only going to be completed if we fight for them. Visit the UN Global Goals website and find out more.
