University Students: Not Your Typical Accountant

Robin shares the story of her career in accounting, business, and finance and the lessons she’s learned along the way – some of them the hard way! She talks about finding her own path as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA), ways to navigate your own career strategically, how to find work-life balance, and what it’s like to be your own boss.

Some of the topics Robin will cover include:

  • Deciding to become a CPA
  • Working in Accounting Firms
  • Working in Industry
  • Career Transitions
  • “Solopreneurship”
  • Work-Life Balance

The presentation is approximately half an hour in length, plus time for questions.

What participants have said:

Thank you Robin for your keynote address at the recent University of Toronto Financial Conference. It is refreshing to have such a well-spoken and engaging speaker who represents both the accounting profession and the entrepreneurial spirit. The students benefited from your advice on thinking strategically and taking risks, and caution from simply taking the first offer that comes their way. This messaging is often understated during their transition to professional life. Thank you again for sharing your experience with us!
