Generation CFO have announced that they have teamed up with ACCA, Accountex and Practice Ignition to bring you one of the largest Virtual Summit ever to take place in the UK accounting profession.
Over the course of 2 days on the 13th and 14th of May, there will be over 100 speakers and over 50 sessions, carefully curated to help you and your team through the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Day 1 on the 13th will focus on accountants in practice and Day 2 on the 14th will be focused on finance professionals in business with sessions on the strategy, people, technology and the new norm you need to navigate through in these uncertain times.
As of 29th April, the Virtual Summit has raised £10,000 for the NHS, has had over 4,000 registrations, with every session with over 2,000 attendees.
Christopher Argent, Digital Finance Function Consultant and Founder of Generation CFO, says: "The Virtual Summit talks were designed specifically for the accounting & finance community following GENCFO research in to the impact on the CFO and what finance teams were going through right now. It’s a non-commercial event with all speakers giving their knowledge and time to the finance community for free. We realised between Generation CFO, ACCA, Accountex, and Practice Ignition, we had an opportunity to do something good and inspiring for our communities and 1000’s of people have responded."
"Registration is free, however, there is a VIP upgrade which allows people to get immediate access to recordings from all of the sessions. All money raised from these upgrade sales will be donated to the NHS for the fantastic work they’re doing right now. We’re extremely proud of what we’re doing, why we’re doing it and who we’re doing it for.”
