CPA Alberta’s Peer-to-Peer Forum—where upskilling and continuous learning meet. Acquire knowledge and skills at the next online Peer-to-Peer Forum on Innovation and Technology.
There many different ways to attain new skills and knowledge, from formal learning and developments such as seminars and executive programs, to informal learning and development such as on the job-training, and of course peer learning. Industry research suggests that learning from direct experiences constitutes approximately 70% of work-relevant learning, and another 20% is attained from social relationships.
Peer-to-Peer Forums support Alberta CPAs in sharing their applied experiences with each other, and provides an avenue for building professional networks. By engaging in informal and social learning, in addition to formal education, is the best way to see results and gain immediate feedback. Join today!
Benefits of peer learning:
- Explore relevant issues, focus on real-world situations, and tackle challenges Alberta CPAs are facing today
- Build core communication skills such as active listening, and providing effective feedback
- Create lasting relationships and expand your professional network for ongoing support
- Understanding is increased and deepened, making it easier to pivot in today’s fast-pace business environment
