Description

You love movies. You enjoy TV. You read books. That's why this is the webinar for you. The best works in popular culture provide valuable lessons in how to live your life well. Sometimes they show what *not* to do, which is just as important. A good story well told is the best way to learn what it means to be both a successful CPA and an honorable human being. This dynamic one-hour presentation will provide you with a list of recommended movies, TV shows and books that are enjoyable, provocative (in the best way), and guaranteed to yield rich dividends. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.

  • Identify more than ten movies, TV shows, and books that will help you become a more successful CPA and a better person
  • Explain why these works provide an essential insight into what it means to be good in business and in life
  • Understand how viewing popular culture through the lenses of ethics and leadership provides rich insights into your work

  • The Godfather
