On 13/03/18 Early Career Accountants are gathering in Dublin for something unique....


Accountants are at least 57% likely move jobs through their professional networkFact.

Accountants today have less & less opportunity to build these critical networks. With changing technology accounting students are spending less time with each other in the classroom and more time, alone, online. Compounding this people in industry/smaller firms do not get the same network exposure as those training in larger firms.

Combine these factors and you’ve got a problem. Accountants today are just not getting the opportunity to build the professional networks that will be critical to their future.

Accountancy School.ie and Barden have the answer.

On Tuesday 13th March at AccountancySchool.ie we’re creating a new destination.  A destination where early career accountants (at all levels) can meet other early career accountants and build the professional networks they need for their future.

On the evening you will get insights on how to create and nurture your professional network from our expert panel including:
