Rationale for video presentation:
As accountants/financial advisers you will spend the majority of your time explaining issues to people. The purpose of the video is to give you the opportunity in a safe environment to develop that skill.
In presenting to clients or your employer you DO NOT read from a script. You are expected to know the topic and the issues raised and be able to talk about them confidently. You are expected to maintain eye contact with Humphrey.
The questions that you will be required to answer may take more than 15 minutes to respond so you will need to develop the skill to summarise.
Background to video presentation:
Humphrey Singh is the senior partner/managing director of the firm. He is partner/managing director responsible for the provision of advice and services to the client BMW Ltd. They are a valued client of the firm.
He is currently in Western Australia on business and will not be back until Monday 8 May 2023.
He has read the report prepared by you and reviewed by Serena.
