Event Information

All too familiar film screening – the latest ICAEW film

Facilitated discussion following the screening of ICAEW’s All Too Familiar film. This event is for UK-based ICAEW members only.

All Too Familiar is a high-quality training film created by ICAEW in collaboration with HMRC which explores the degree of trust still placed in personal and professional relationships and whether enough scepticism is being used in the fight against economic crime.

Event Information

As with the previous ICAEW films, False Assurance (2015) and Without Question (2017), the latest release, All Too Familiar, challenges mindsets and provokes discussion. This time on the need for greater professional scepticism to help reduce the risk of economic crime, and in particular, money laundering.

As well as professional scepticism, All Too Familiar draws out many themes for discussion, such as:

  • Can familiarity cloud a firm’s judgement,
  • When is the right time to disengage from a client, and
  • What are a firm’s professional responsibilities when engaging with law enforcement?

The film also examines the appropriate levels of Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and risk assessments for client relationships.

Northern Society Vice President Richard Slack will facilitate a Chatham House Rules discussion. Breakfast items will be served prior to the films screening. There is no charge to attend. This event is for UK-based ICAEW members only.

3-part manager mini-series: First time manager skills

Northern Society of Chartered Accountants   norsca.co.uk

A series of seminars for young members to help develop your career.

Most new managers don’t receive any formal training on great management, yet it’s one of the best ways to drive impact in your organisation. To put this into context: the majority of unhappy employees don’t leave jobs, they leave managers.

Event Information

In this session, attendees will understand what good management is and why it matters. WE discuss key manager traits and attributes, and cover some of the key manager processes: having great 1:1s, giving feedback, setting development plans and motivating teams.

This lunchtime session will be led by Oliver Deacon, an FCA who qualified at Deloitte and, until recently, was an FD at Microsoft. Oliver has been managing teams for over 15 years, with consistently strong employee feedback scores, and has now become a full time coach.
