Hope is the feeling that life and work have a meaning… It is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that it makes sense, regardless of how it turns out (Vaclav Havel)
Our profession needs such hope. A hope that it can find meaning in taking responsibility for its own fate and breaking the cycle of reactive proposals and regulations with limited effect. We need to find ways to transform the existing inertia into a force for positive change in society. If we believe in our potential to deliver trust in business, institutions and society, we have to ask what we can do collectively that no single firm or organisation can do alone.
We strongly believe in the unlimited potential of connecting top professionals together. Such peers will be visionaries, creative thinkers and purpose-driven leaders. These influential and bold implementers will share experiences and insights from many sectors. If thinkers from the coffee-houses in the past brought us the Enlightenment, what could a diverse group of people with strong convictions achieve for the profession today?
We need more than just isolated innovation events and moments of serendipity. We need to create a network of game-changers who want to build new leadership for the profession in the 21st century – collaborative, connected and dynamic. We are calling on people who are determined and committed to building something bigger than self, to learn from each other and to exchange new ideas.
The structured programme of the GameChangers Network will create a safe and creative space where people from across the profession can work together to develop and pilot their ideas. We all know how it may be almost impossible to innovate when risk has a high cost for an organisation. True innovators need a protected space for experimentation, where they can take risks and learn from mistakes.
This will help us focus on systemic ideas and solutions to the challenges that the profession and society are facing. Even large organisations might present narrow viewpoints rather than looking at the bigger picture. As a multi-disciplinary group from the professional community, we can have a bird’s eye view of the auditing profession and develop ideas and solutions that will have long term effects and address systemic challenges.
