Time: 10:00 - 11:00

Presenter: Nestene Botha CA(SA)

Professional behaviour is an all-encompassing concept that covers one's interactions with fellow colleagues, customers as well as leadership.


Professional behaviour encapsulates the comprehensive spectrum of interactions individuals undertake with peers, clientele, and managerial hierarchies within professional contexts. It serves as a guiding principle dictating the manner in which duties are discharged. 

At the core of ethical conduct for accounting practitioners lies adherence to their respective professional body's Code of Professional Conduct. Consequently, adherence to this code is mandated by all professional bodies, underscoring its paramount importance. Often, professionals grapple with the inherent tension between upholding professional standards and navigating commercial imperatives. The Code of Professional Conduct serves as an indispensable resource, furnishing guidance on the appropriate resolution of dilemmas while safeguarding the integrity of professional conduct.
