Is This You?

  • You are an accountant or other functional professional.
  • You want to build a successful career.
  • You are a professional association or network that supports accountants with their continuing professional development. 

Building A Successful Career In Accounting or Your Professional Field Is Tough In My Experience

  • It’s becomes more competitive the further you progress.
  • It’s more like a marathon than a sprint.
  • Being technically brilliant and professionally qualified is just the baseline requirement.
  • You have to develop a much broader set of skills to be successful.

Truth is it isn't necessarily the most talented who go achieve the most in their career.

It's those who are:


Technically competent in their professional field

Not necessarily brilliant at the technical elements of the role


Self confident, self aware and action orientated

They understand themselves, their value and are willing to take action.


Great at building relationships, presenting their ideas and partnering effectively with the wider business

They get that this is how they really add value. 


Focused on the success of the business and making a real contribution

They pay attention to what really matters to the organisation.  They flex and adapt based on the needs of their internal.  They think more about results, outcome and contribution and less on activities.


Able to successfully navigate the job market

They know what they want.  They are clear about the sacrifices they will make.  They know what they have to offer. 

They can market and sell themselves effectively and make the right moves at the right time for the right reasons.


Are good all rounders

By that they have right blend of technical, non technical, interpersonal and business skills.

The good news is that building a successful career is achievable if that's what you want and are willing to do the work
