Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand
Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand has been working with NIDA for four years in an innovative partnership to offer presentation and personal presence seminars for their members. The seminars draw upon the acting techniques that have trained Australia’s most recognised and awarded performers.
Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand is made up of over 100,000 diverse, talented and financially astute professionals who utilise their skills every day to make a difference for businesses the world over. It focuses on the education and lifelong learning of members and engaging in advocacy and thought leadership in areas that impact the economy and domestic and international capital markets.
The organisation is committed to delivering the highest quality training for its members and business professionals as part of its Continuing Professional Education requirements. Feedback from members about what training and development they require consistently indicated they were most commonly seeking presentation skills training.
‘When sourcing providers for our Continuing Professional Education programs, we were impressed that NIDA Corporate could not only meet all our needs, but also offer a variety of options to enable us to build on our training offerings each year at our signature event, Business Forum’ says Gill McEwen, National Manager, PD/Programs and eLearning.
‘NIDA has been able to deliver a variety of different presentation workshops over the past three years, providing our Business Forum delegates with a number of tools and techniques they can instantly take back to the workplace and apply. Workshops have included "Engaging Presentations" (2011) "Reaching Your Audience" (2012), "Personal Presence" (2013), most recently "Thinking on Your Feet", a plenary session to lead delegates into their networking event at each Forum across Australia.’
Each year the NIDA Corporate training program provides the opportunity for Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand’s members to develop different presentation techniques, so delegates know they will be able to continue to build on their skills.
'Many of our delegates are return customers to the workshops which is a testament to the value they are gaining from their attendance.'
'Quite often they initially say they would prefer to just sit and listen, but NIDA’s expert tutors are great at encouraging participants to step out of their comfort zone and practice the techniques for themselves. Before you know it the delegates are embracing the workshop and really enjoying the experience.'
'Ultimately, we are aiming for our members and business professionals to select Business Forum as their “must attend” event each year. Including high quality vendors such as NIDA Corporate who deliver an experience to continuously develop the skill level of our delegates, will keep them coming back for more year after year.'
