All professionals and chartered accountants have to manage so many things in today’s world where the compliance level is increasing day by day. In this run of doing compliances, it is frequently seen that professionals compromise their personal life because of the increasing pressure. “It is very important that we should learn how to balance things happening in our professional and personal life,” said CA Sarvesh Joshi, Vice-Chairman of Western India Regional Council (WIRC) of ICAI.

He was recently speaking as the chief guest at the full day seminar on ‘Advanced Management Development Programme’ organised by Nagpur Branch of ICAI.

He added that professionals like CAs are facing multiple issues and problems in day to day life. To bring out a proper solution, it is important that one should first understand the problem properly. This will help in doing the right thing at the right time. One should not only be physically strong but also be mentally strong to take bold decisions.
As a leader, CAs are responsible for many things and also answerable to not only our profession but also to society as well.

“In this entire process, give sufficient time not only to your profession but also to your near and dear ones. We always try to update our knowledge by attending multiple seminars, workshops and conferences but we should know the importance of such programmes which help us in learning new techniques which will ultimately help us in delivering in a better style and in more effective manner,” he pointed out.

Joshi congratulated the Nagpur Branch for thinking out of box and for organising such programme which was organised for the first time in the region.

CA Abhijit Kelkar, Regional Council Member (RCM) expressed his happiness for organising the programme for members which would help them in understanding the management skills and be fruitful to them in their respective areas of work. He also suggested that such kind of programmes should be regularly organised in future which will help members to get a better command over the required skills apart from the technical knowledge.

Chairman of Nagpur Branch CA Sandeep Jotwani said, “Nowadays almost in every office of a Chartered Accountant there are number of people who are working. When we work in a team, as a leader we should develop multiple skills to manage the team in an effective manner. Many times we complain that we do not receive the necessary support from our team mates. Many people, who wish to have more team members, cannot do that because of absence of required skills. It is important for us to realise that if we really want to find solution to all these problems, do we have the necessary skills or do we perform our job in a proper manner.” To equip the members and to explain the importance of management skills, the seminar was organised along with experts.

Immediate Past Chairman of Nagpur Branch CA Swapnil Ghate co-ordinated the programme whereas Secretary of Nagpur Branch CA Suren Duragkar proposed formal vote of thanks. Anushka Karira along with Parag Dahiwele explained various techniques of advanced management.
Prominently present were CA Sanjay M Agrawal, CA Kirit Kalyani, CA Dilip Lohiya and members in large numbers.
