The finance and accounting professionals of today are at a crossroads. They can watch as robots and advances in technology commoditise their skills and downgrade their role OR they can adapt to the new environment and increase their influence and the value they add to organisations.

How will the skillsets of these professionals need to change to meet the needs of a dynamic business environment which is undergoing rapid transformation as a result of the digital revolution?

The establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) this year is one which will need thousands of skilled finance professionals who can work across borders.

As ASEAN embraces the concept of a ‘smart region’, we will see the rapid growth of social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies that will help bring about a greater interconnectedness among accountants and finance professionals in ASEAN.

Doing things a little differently this year, we are organising the first-ever ASEAN-themed Annual Conference with a wider geographical focus.

This year, we’ll provide you with both local AND regional insights on a common topic impacting businesses in the region – Finance and accounting talent in ASEAN.

Get answers to the following questions:

  • What would the talent pipeline look like in the coming years?
  • What are the changes needed to the education, qualification and training of professional accountants to ensure the supply of the required talent with the appropriate skillsets?

The insightful conference will explore the above issues as well as identify the skills and competencies that you will require by 2020 in this region.

Determine what new skillsets you should acquire and how to evolve your career within the accountancy sector of your Country and ASEAN.
