Title Financial reporting update
Date 19  August
Time 10:45-11:15

In this short sharp session we will look at topical and recent financial reporting (FR) issues and developments. COVID-19 will, of course, have a significant impact on financial statements and as a consequence of this there are many risk areas that need to be considered carefully.

This session won’t just be about COVID-19. We’ll look at other topical accounting areas too. Vivek with his unique style will explain the hot topics in financial reporting in a lively and engaging manner, which is most certainly not your typical FR update!

Title The future of finance
Date 20 August
Time 14:00 -14:45

This panel discussion will examine the seismic transformation of finance and how finance leaders can practically leverage the opportunities of this digital revolution through technologies like cloud, process automation and machine learning. The discussion will focus on real-life applications of technology in the finance function.

Key takeaways:

  • Grow you understanding of where finance will be in 10 years’ time – through people and technology.
  • Begin building a high-level long-term vision for your organisation.
  • Get clear actionable takeaways to help your organisation accelerate its cloud journey.
