Deep Dive into the Future
Join us for a day spent listening to and discussing some of the most pressing issues facing finance at the moment. We'll be taking a deep dive into the skills you and your team will need to face the future of finance.
And what about robots?
Well, they're already here, and will play a big part in shaping our futures. We'll be chatting to Savita Mace, Director at Astra Zeneca who'll be asking the question: Will Robots Take My Job? She'll be discussing the types of skills we'll need and look at career mapping.
Throughout the day we'll be hearing from 10 speakers who'll be sharing their insights with you, including our second keynote speaker of the day; Small Business Commissioner, Liz Barclay who'll be discussing the benefits of Paying Well, Paying For Good. Paying your suppliers on time is not just about good cash flow management, but also about ESG and good governance. Liz Barclay will be sharing her thoughts on how by adhering to the Prompt Payment Code, companies can leverage compliance and retain key talent.

Across all areas of finance there are efficiency improvements to be made. Increasingly, companies are also recognising that they can add value to their bottom line and show additional value to shareholders, investors and analysts by improving their financial processes. Organisations are taking steps towards further automation in their quest to do so, but many find themselves in a tangle of legacy solutions and outdated processes.
