In the ‘Beyond Accounting – Building Trust’ webinar we will share our global trust research and debate who should lead in ‘Building Trust’ and consider what matters most to business leaders as they build for the future, how we can integrate sustainability into future business models to build stronger, resilient businesses and economies and who should act as the guardians of data integrity to tackle the misinformation crisis.  The research has highlighted an opportunity for the profession to step forward and lead on these topics.  We would like the webinar to debate whether the finance and business profession is ready to lead and what steps need to be in place for this to happen.

Speakers are a mix of CA ANZ members and guests who are thought leaders in their fields. Our first session runs for about 70 minutes with 4 speakers. We then have a participant discussion for 15-20 minutes and finish with a second session that runs for about 30-35 minutes – where the 4 speakers return for a Q&A discussion moderated by CA ANZ’s Simon Grant.
