The Young Chartered Accountants Forum (YCAF) of CA Sri Lanka has taken the lead to inculcate the necessary skills among young chartered accountants to help them achieve success as globally sought after professionals. 

In this endeavour, YCAF recently organised a career guidance workshop to help young chartered accountants transit from trainees to fully fledged finance professionals and excel in their careers.

The workshop was conducted by a pool of renowned resource personnel and was designed with a view of equipping these accountants with the desired skills and attitudes required in the current context. The workshop covered inherent powers of professional presence, importance of grooming and etiquette and how to get rid of interview jitters. 

The sessions were conducted by executive coach Loretta Gunawardene, as well as Smart Quest Director Andrea Jayathilake and John Keells Holdings Group Financial Controller Suran Wijesinghe, who shared insights into the necessity for agile and vibrant leadership in the digital era.  The workshop was followed by a panel discussion on the expectations of the corporate world from chartered accountants, which gave insights on the most sought after questions by the young professionals.

The panel members comprised of H C P Consulting Chairman Chaaminda Kumarasiri, Supreme Global Holdings Head of Finance Yogendrapasath Sathiyaseelan and John Keells Holdings Sector Financial Controller – Destination Management Sector Vindya Cooray. The discussion was moderated by Ceylon Cold Stores Finance Manager Jani Ganeshan.
