3 industry experts, David Walsh, Jadie Petch and Rael Novos, shared their personal journeys and perspective on navigating the industry and becoming a future leader with an audience of nearly 100 Chartered Accountants.
Actionable advice that they shared included:
- Step out of your comfort zone - whether it's switching industries or seizing internal opportunities you hadn't considered before, taking that leap can lead to remarkable growth and opportunities.
- Prepare and research - whether you're preparing for an interview or contemplating a significant career change, preparation will demonstrate your commitment and interest in the new role. It also means you have the knowledge and information you need to make an informed decisions.
- Have a mentor or trusted person in your network - having someone to bounce ideas off is invaluable. They can provide guidance, share their experiences, and offer different perspectives on your career decisions.
- Prioritise your mental health and well-being - not only are regular breaks, disconnecting from technology, and doing things that help you relax important for your wellbeing, they also increase your overall productivity and creativity.
