Australian Accountants enter Second Life

Lee Hopkins (SL: Lee Laperriere), an online communications strategist and Lindy McKeown (SL: Decka Mah), an educational consultant, presented at the Chartered Practising Accountants Congress. Both are well known Australian Second Life residents.

It was the first event in Second Life the accountants peak body has run, and by all accounts it was a success (geddit?).

Lee has the full story on his blog – kudos to CPA Australia for taking the plunge with the Second Life session. When true ROI is demonstrated with virtual worlds, the bean counters themselves will be leading the charge if CPA Australia have anything to do with it.

  1. Hello, I'm from CPA Australia and one of the organisers of our Second Life event. Thanks for picking up on our story!

    We have been really pleased with the response to the SL event – our members who attended it are keen to see more, and it was great to see so many getting involved. It helped those members who live in disparate locations around the world attend the same event together, which would not have been possible without a virtual world.

    A point of clarification – the conference that Lee and Decka presented at is CPA Congress. The letters actually stand for Certified Practising Accountant. Just in case anyone was wondering. 🙂
