CASSI Conference 25 October 2017

 The Chartered Accountants Student Society of Ireland (CASSI) are delighted to announce that places are now available to attend our annual conference at 6.00pm on Wednesday 25th of October 2017, in the Dean Hotel.

This year’s conference “Finding the Balance” will give you the opportunity to hear from Chartered Accountants from practice and industry as well as banking, government agencies, technology and beyond! Our speakers will share their insights and experiences of their ACA journey and give you the opportunity to ask questions and find out exactly where your qualification can take you!

We have an excellent line-up of speakers for the evening, featuring our keynote speaker Kweku Adoboli, ex UBS trader. Kweku is known for his role in the UBS rogue trader scandal in 2011, where he engaged in unauthorized trading that cost UBS $2 Billion. He was consequently convicted of fraud by abuse of power in 2012 and sentenced to seven years in prison.

His piece will delve into his own personal experiences and focus on the ethical side of “Finding the Balance” and in contrast also discuss how risk management controls in financial markets may be circumvented.

Our other speakers include the following:   

  • Shauna Greely (Chartered Accountants Ireland, President)
  • Michael Walls (Urban Volt, Finance Director)
  • Roseann Heavey (Noone Casey, Partner)
  • Sinead Fox Hamilton (McKinty Associates, CAI Young Chartered Star)
