Technical training on the latest developments in tax, audit and accounting is offered through classroom learning, for example alongside our regional conferences and collaboration summits, as well as a variety of live and recorded webinars. This year tax training (alongside various conferences) and audit and accounting training took place in the form of classroom training. There were also a number of training sessions delivered to member firms on site, and we are looking to increase this area of our services. This year also saw the first delivery of a two-day course aimed at new or soon to be managers.
Webinars allow us to disseminate information on international regulations and developments affecting accounting, audit and tax, and global initiatives faster and more widely across the international network. In 2016 our webinars included both technical and non-technical. The latter covered a wide range of soft skills such as coaching and managing in times of change. Other non-technical webinars included how to develop new services. Individuals can either join the live webinars or download the recordings of these sessions. The recorded webinars offer just-in-time training, a flexible approach to meet development needs.
