ACCA Mid-year Member Business Breakfast
How technology is reshaping the role of the accountant
- insights into staying in front of the trends
Please join us to discuss ACCA's latest research into technical trends. This event will have a particular focus on how technology is reshaping the role of the accountant, with specific insights into staying in front of the trends.
John Winter, head of ACCA Australia and New Zealand, along with a guest speaker will share findings from our latest research as well as present a compelling case study on how the latest technology trends (digitalisation, mobility, social media etc) are reshaping the role of accounting professionals.
Topics for discussion will include:
· Overview on the technology changes in Australia and New Zealand
· Australia and New Zealand's competitive advantages compared to the rest of Asia Pacific and the USA - is ANZ a leader, ladder or adaptor?
· The changes to businesses brought on by technology trends
· How technology is reshaping the roles of accounting professionals
