Why should you attend the conference?

Many of the topics have been suggested by delegates who have attended previous Redworth conferences as well as the NorSCA CPD programme. Also, Rebecca Benneyworth will answer delegates’ specific tax questions in her popular “Rebecca on Request” slot on Sunday morning. You can be sure that the conference will meet your business and professional needs, as well as those of your staff.

Speaker

Chris Burton
Chris Burton, CABA

Chris has a wealth of experience delivering leadership and management development programmes to drive cultural and behavioural change in the private and public sector. Chris is an advanced Train the Trainer Practitioner and has an MA in Theatre Production, previously teaching drama in the prison service.

About CABA

CABA is the charity providing lifelong support to past and present ICAEW members, their families and ACA students. CABA’s aim is to enable individuals in the chartered accountant community to promote their own wellbeing, physically, emotionally, financially and professionally. Since they were founded in 1886 the services they provide have grown significantly to meet the changing needs of living in a modern digital age. And although CABA works closely with ICAEW, it is an independent organisation and they do not share information with ICAEW about the people they work with. All the services that CABA provide including these training courses are free.

All CABA trainers are experts in their specialism and courses are delivered by experienced, qualified trainers. Many trainers have a background in professional services and some are qualified accountants, so they understand the environment accountants work in and appreciate the pressures you face day to day.

The courses are practical, providing evidence based tools, techniques and strategies that you can take away to use in your personal and professional life. In addition, the courses are an opportunity to network with others who are facing similar issues or situations and share ideas and resources. You will learn the skills that fall outside of technical training – like being able to respond confidently to change and how to deal with pressure; skills that can determine your success and put you a step ahead of the competition.
