MACPA - BLI CPA Summit Social Media Guide for helping you be even more #FutureReady through planned Serendipity with our Preferred Providers and participants.
Connect, Collaborate, Innovate at the CPA Summit on December 6th, 2018.
Our Strategic Partners and Preferred Providers:
Let’s start with the imperative for innovation. In a world of rapid change and increasing complexity, we are all being challenged to innovate or, at the minimum, iterate by constantly improving things and doing more with less. In fact, my favorite definition of innovation comes from futurist Andrew Zolli, who says innovation is creating value in anticipation of future trends.
Serendipity can be shaped: We can make choices that will increase our ability to attract people and resources to us that we never knew existed, leading to serendipitous encounters that prove enormously valuable to us.
We have worked to attract the relevant innovators sharing our Profession around the hard trends of technology, demographics and regulations and standards so that we can discover early windows into the developments that will end up transforming our organizations. Sure, serendipity has always been important, but in a world of near-constant disruption, it becomes essential to survival. That is what we mean by being Future-Ready - being Aware, Predictive and Adaptive of the trends we know are shaping our future. That is the purpose behind the Maryland Association of CPAs and the Business Learning Institute's #CPASummit.
