“A business, successful or not, is merely a reflection of the character of its leadership.”
-  Samuel Truett Cathy, Founder of American fast food chain, Chick-fil-A

The Accountancy Future Leaders Programme (AFLP) is designed to develop more competitive Small and Medium-sized Practices (SMPs) by developing their up-coming leaders. The programme will equip them with leadership capabilities, market insights and business growth strategies to seize opportunities in a market that is becoming increasingly complex, globally interdependent, and digitalised. 

The six-day programme is an initiative by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) in partnership with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, and supported by the Economic Development Board.  


Candidates must be: 

  • Professional accountants working in SMPs

The six-day programme comprises two components: 

PHASE 1 (E-Learning): Effective Leadership in Practice  
A 1.5-hour module to help participants to develop an understanding on the attributes of a good leader and the common styles of leadership in practice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the traits of effective leadership and common practices of good leaders
