Nafiz Azman CA has been involved with ACT Young Chartered Accountants since early 2017 and is currently the YCA ACT Regional Council representative. His contributions to organising trivia nights and other events have helped raise thousands of dollars for charities such as Beyond Blue.
“The biggest challenge is meeting everyone's expectations for the events, including our partners and stakeholders,” he says. “Afterwards, we take a step back and try to make sure we do better the next year. And for the last few years, it's been quite remarkable. The feedback has been really positive.
Azman has also been instrumental in organising professional development events in his community, where local entrepreneurs and business leaders share their experiences and insights.
“These events help us understand business better, because we get to see it from the other side and not just from an client-consultant perspective.”
Azman started his accounting career in 2010 and in 2016 joined Callida Consulting, which has provided him the opportunity to consult to major public sector organisations, including for the Department of Health and Australian Federal Police.
“The finance world in the public sector has a direct impact on the community, which is what makes it so rewarding. My job is to ensure the effective allocation of public resources.”
