Networking is essence
Business Bureau :
NAGPUR Branch of WIRC of ICAI recently organised a seminar on ‘Professional and Networking Guidelines’ under ‘Young Member Mentorship’ programme. The highlight of the event was that it was designed for CA couple members and the lecture was also delivered by CA couple members. “Your network is your networth,” said CA Saket Bagdia, Chairman of Nagpur Branch. With the diversification in various professional avenues, it becomes difficult for individual / small firms to cope up with the requirements. To enable CA members to enter into a networking model to enhance professional capacities and to perform bigger tasks together, ICAI has released ‘Networking’ guidelines to be followed by members.
He said, “This is a welcome step and urged members to take maximum benefit.” He said that during the times of COVID-19, the importance of balancing professional and personal life has become all the more important. Bagdia pointed out that with increasing compliances and responsibilities, professionals are required to maintain proper balance and should take proper care of health and devote sufficient time for family. The session on ‘Balancing professional and personal life’ was taken up jointly by young CA couple -- CA Aayush and CA Chitra Agrawal. The importance of the term balance in one’s life was effectively explained by them.
