The future belongs to you
PQ magazine and London South Bank University’s one-day conference takes place in November. It’s free to all PQ readers – so make sure that you’re there
As the ACCA says: “Tomorrow’s world is coming”. From new skills to changing roles, tomorrow’s CFOs will increasingly need to be good at brokering external relations as they are at dealing with the media. In many senses ACCA sees them becoming the face of the corporate brand. They, of course, already fill this role with investors, but they will have a broader circle of business relations.
The world is changing at a rapid pace, dictating that the skills and knowledge required by professional accountants must change, too.
So, how are you going to stay ahead of the curve? Well, a good start would be to sign up to our free one-day conference, called ‘The Future of Accountancy: Success in a changing world’. We are very excited to announce that we have enlisted the services of Alan Hatfield, the ACCA executive director, strategy and development. He will be helping us to open the conference.
There really will be something for everyone, as we have four streams running throughout the day. If you want to get to grips with big data or making tax digital then our digital technology room is where you want to be heading. Or maybe you want to get all technical on us? Then you should make for our ‘let’s get technical’ room. Here you can get updates on crowd funding, money laundering, leases and lots more of the big issues. There are two other rooms as well – ‘own your career’ and ‘employer advice’.
We really do have it all covered. And, remember, this is a free event for you. To sign up all you need to do is go to www.lsbu.ac.uk/what’s-on and scroll to 23 November. The PQ team would love to see you there.
