Are you future ready? Do you have the skills to deal with the disruptive forces at work in the market today?
A recent study by Oxford put the accounting and auditing profession at a 94% disruption by technology. In addition the profession is facing the massive “shift change” as a new generation begins to take the reigns from the retiring baby boomers.
Major shifts in leadership, learning, technology, generations, and the workplace are underway. Except this time it is different. This time the incoming shift will require a new set of skills and tools to continue the work of the prior shift. The cause of the shift change is the rapidly changing and complex hyper-competitive environment which has become the new normal.
The key to managing this shift change is a very simple, but very big idea – develop your talent and Keep your L>C.
Tom Hood shares his perspective on how the profession is responding and what you should be thinking about to position yourself for these changes ahead. As the second most influential person in the CPA Profession, Tom was involved in creating a vision for CPAs into the year 2025. That vision talks about how accounting professionals can move up the value chain and the skills you will need to grow and avoid disruption. Tom will share the latest research and real world experience with his work at the Business Learning Institute. Participants will learn about the latest trends and techniques to navigate this “shift change” as leaders of organizations and as individuals.
Tom also introduces the latest research from the Business Learning Institute about the "missing competency" of anticipation and the related "future ready" skills needed by CFOs, Controllers, CPAs, and accounting and finance professionals.
