Developing your next generation of accountants - Asia Pacific

09-24-2020 4:00 PM - 09-24-2020 4:45 PM

About this Event

As the demands of the accounting profession continue to evolve, today’s accountants need to revisit their traditional combination of knowledge, skills and behaviours. This shift to new ways of working has been accelerated and changes given new urgency by COVID-19.

This webinar explores what modern and future accountants will need, along with an overview of the professional competencies and skills to help them to adapt. Specifically, the session will cover:

• The key areas of digital technology accountants will need to understand to be effective in their roles

• The changing skills required from accountants, including implications for professional judgement, communication and ethical appraisal

• The mindset of continual learning required for accountants to thrive in a digital world

Who is this session for?

While this webinar is aimed at a general business audience, we highly recommend for L&D decision makers, HR Directors, CFOs, Heads of Department and accountancy firm partners.

We expect demand for this session to be high, so priority is given to professionals in these roles.
