ICAEW Virtually Live

Future of finance: are you ready?

Speaker: Oliver Deacon, Leadership Coach

Schedule: 17 Jun 2021 14:45 - 15:25 BST


Finance is evolving quickly, but many of us remain unclear about what that future holds for our work and finance organisations.

Oliver Deacon, a former finance director at Microsoft and finance innovation specialist will talk about how finance is expected to evolve over the next 10 years, and how leaders and teams from all sizes of organisation can start that journey.

Armed with the knowledge of what the future will be, attendees will understand the paths they can take to be successful and, most importantly, what's their next step.

Topics covered:

  • How roles and work will evolve.
  • The technologies driving the change.
  • How individuals can build a plan for the future.
