Soft Skills Required by Forensics Practitioners

Unlike traditional accountants who are governed by auditing/ financial reporting standards in performing their duties, forensic practitioners need to exercise reasonable judgment without the guidance of specific standards when carrying out their duties. In this respect, soft skills and critical thinking are pivotal for them in ensuring the quality of their work. In this interactive face-to-face event, the speakers will talk about a number of essential traits and characteristics that forensic accountants should possess, such as being analytical, detail-oriented, ethical, responsive, insightful, and sceptical. On top of this, forensic accountants must be effective communicators, as they need to present their findings clearly and persuasively to various different parties. Their audiences include clients and judges, who may be considered laymen in this field, and may not be familiar with technical terms in the relevant reports.

The event rundown will be as follows:

  • A brief introduction of general skillsets that forensic practitioners should possess
  • Small group discussions led by respective speakers as facilitators, where participants can discuss and raise questions in their groups, with the speakers providing their feedback
  • The facilitators will be invited back to stage to summarize the discussions within their groups
  • Overall Q&A session
