Illuminate x CPA Business Conference


Hi, my name is Erika and I am currently a grade 11 student. Today, I had the pleasure to attend another Illuminate Conference, specifically the National High School Business Conference. I was able to learn about the field of forensic accounting from Mark Grenon. It was very interesting to learn about how accountants can actually help with court cases and better their community in ways that I had never imagined before. There were also amazing workshops about mental fitness and CPA. It was great to learn about saboteurs and how to prevent them from controlling our mind and decisions. Jodi Buckley gave an amazing presentation about the CPA program and what the pathway looks like for those who certify as a CPA. Overall, this conference had enhanced my knowledge on the field of accounting and I was able to gain a lot of advice on post-secondary and opportunities after university.
