In just under 24 hours I will be giving my first university lecture at Mac Uni ! Excited but also nervous !
Looking forward to the experience of firstly lecturing to some 800 students but then also being part of the industry professionals assisting with the unit throughout the semester.
Its a new domain for me in that my speaking engagements in the past have been for my peers and colleagues, sharing ideas and giving insights into how we run EFS, but tomorrow I am promoted as an industry leading public practice accountant in the SME sector and my audience will be the accountants of tomorrow, many of whom will make the decision upon which part of the profession to begin their careers in following the completion of this unit.
To me, this comes with a big responsibility to not only the students but the profession generally !
I will post back here throughout the day tomorrow to share my thoughts on how it all goes 🙂
