Ian will share a perspective on the challenges of international membership growth and a need to keep entry standards up to date in a fast-changing world. Approaches to education, training, and the needs of professions are different globally. What unites nearly all professions are the challenges we are facing from changing industry needs, the impact of technology and data, and the importance of lifelong learning. How best to respond to those challenges, support people into the profession, and deliver a positive social impact?
