Comment by John Robbie: Accountants as tomorrow's leaders

“They were not wide-eyed romantic dreamers. Although they certainly had dreams, when you probed, they could back it easily with numbers, with statistics, checks, balances, projections and plans. I now understand why chartered accountancy gives someone such an advantage in business – the training and standards are incredible. I fully expect 10 of those people we interviewed in 10 years’ time to be household names in South Africa. People will look to them as leaders. Active, achieving people – they are the leaders of tomorrow”
