I recently stumbled across a new site, cpdwise.com, which can provide us accountants with all things CPD online. cpdwise.com is the brainchild of Diarmuid O'Donovan, FCCA , who serves on the International Assembly of the ACCA. Most of the professional accountancy bodies now allow flexibility in the types of learning that constitute CPD (check out my article, CPD - banish the fear), and cpdwise can offer e-learning which can flexibly, efficiently and economically fill this gap. Diarmuid recognises that while many of the accountancy professional bodies and many of our employers offer some CPD learning opportunities, for most accountants, their learning needs will not, and cannot, be met wholly from these sources.
Check out cpdwise.com to satisfy your CPD requirements, the e-learning way. And remember that you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for bespoke one to one or group coaching on specific CPD needs. Here are a few examples of topics on which I have coached accountants:
- Communication skills. Assertiveness. Managing conflict
- Performance enhancement. Skills audit. Confidence building.
- Career planning
- Work-life balance. Time management
- Leadership skills. Team building
- Change management
