Without Question: the profession on screen

On the back of the global success of False Assurance, our first educational film, we have invested in a second film, Without Question.

The new film continues the overarching theme of professional scepticism but this time the script has extended the scrutiny of behaviours to tax advisers as well as auditors.

It probes issues such as:

• reliance on experts;
• accounting estimates;
• social media policies;
• whistle-blowing procedures and culture;
• conflicts within a family-owned company;
• the struggle of founding shareholders with the loss of control; and
• the struggle of new independent directors to assert control and good governance.

The hypothetical scenarios enable viewers to discuss difficult issues they might not feel comfortable to address in relation to their own work.

With its focus on professional scepticism and generic issues, False Assurance and Without Question are being used by firms and companies of all sizes and all around the world at:

• Auditor and tax adviser workshops.
• For internal auditor, senior manager and director away days.
• For the teaching of university students.

  • I have just watch the trailer for the above film, admittedly without sound.  I am concerned that the film features 90% white males. 
    Would it not have been better for the ICAEW to have featured more women, like 50%, and an ethnically diverse cast?
    This film looks dated already, and if it is to be a teaching film then how is it aspirational for women and minorities?  Broadcast television is required to consider diversity issues, was this the case with this ICAEW film?
