This event will present a way of thinking that is opposite to the experience and training of a CPA. Most CPAs are trained as "historians." They look back to measure, reconcile, examine, and extrapolate. The Anticipatory CPA learns how to use foresight to analyze soft and hard trends, to predict outcomes, to leverage cultural change, and to engage emerging technology. These skills enable the anticipatory CPA to jump ahead of the competition. Change is coming, fast. The winners will be those who can anticipate those changes to leverage new opportunities. Daniel Burrus will present the skills and methods that can reorient your thinking about the future. Your future.
