Overview:

Against the backdrop of change and uncertainty, there's an immediate need for the finance and accounting function to evolve and shift from being reactive to being anticipatory and proactive. The megatrends of technology, demographics, and regulations and standards are driving massive changes in companies and firms.

This interactive session will cover the latest research from the AICPA’s Future of Finance initiative with insights from many of the leading companies in the world like BP, Merck, IBM, Experian, Yelp, Swiss RE:, AON, Nike, Stanley Black & Decker and more.
 
You will learn how these companies are dealing with the acute talent shortage, digital transformation and the growing talent-performance gap.
 
The opportunity has never been greater, the stakes have never been higher and the risk of doing nothing is growing every day.

Objectives:

  • Recognize the Future Ready Finance Professional – Being Aware, Predictable, and Adaptable
  • Identify the latest hard trends and opportunities facing accounting and finance in organizations
  • Identify the latest on the 'Great Resignation' and how finance teams are addressing the talent shortage
  • Recognize what critical skills are needed for the future of accounting and finance and how to build a future-ready finance team
