Karachi Electric Supply Company Limited Enlightens Future of Youth – ACCA High Achievers Ceremony
Karachi: The CEO of Karachi Electric Supply Company, Tabish Gauhar distributed certificates among ACCA high achievers at a ceremony held here on Thursday.
Speaking on the occasion, he said that he was happy on being a part of this celebration of achievement since the country does not have much to celebrate otherwise. He said the only way to overcome hard luck was hard work and the successful students were there because of hard work and not luck.
Mr. Gauhar emphasized that luck does play an important role but students must do their best and leave the rest to Allah as there is no shortcut in life. On a lighter note, he remarked that the students had excelled in their exams despite all the power cuts! He said it was KESC’s resolve to not only enlighten Karachi but to enlighten the future of the youth as well.
Gauhar remarked that the passing out students were making a giant leap from being students to professionals and it was now a different world that they were entering. He emphasized that in reaching a position of leadership, young people don’t turn to textbooks but to experiences at their educational institutions.
Such people are never afraid to ask questions as that was what he had learned in life. He urged the qualifying students not to be afraid of asking questions as leadership was all about integrity and passion, something that cannot be bought. If young people were not passionate, he said, they would never excel and would never grow and follow their dream.
The ACCA is a 100-year old global body for professional accountants with 424,000 students and 147,000 members in 170 countries. ACCA trainees have been inducted into KESC under a regular program starting in 2007.
The utility’s role in this regard has already been recognized with award of the ACCA Gold Category Employer Certificate. This symbolizes the Company’s attainment of best practice standards relating to development of students aspiring for professional qualifications.
The high achievers who received certificates at the ceremony had demonstrated their potential to be the future leaders of the accountancy profession as they were equipped with in-depth knowledge and skills underpinned by strong values of professionalism and ethics.
