Topic: Digital Disruption: What the Future Holds

In this rapidly evolving world, technology is changing how we work and live more than ever before. And accounting isn’t immune to this evolution — according to a Deloitte and Accenture study, robotics is predicted to automate or eliminate 40% of basic accounting work by 2020. The best time to prepare for the future of the profession? Right now.

In this session Ken Witt will share research findings on the Future of Finance and Auditing in the Future, and cover strategies for finance professionals to develop the new competencies needed to add value in today’s rapidly evolving business world.

The objectives of this session:
• Gain an overview of the impact of technology on the accounting and audit profession
• Understand the new competencies needed for finance professionals
• Evaluate the landscape and opportunities for implementing artificial intelligence solutions in your enterprise
