What do a farmer, a charity chief executive and a managing partner at a solicitor’s firm all have in common?
They all need talented accountants to help them make a success of their organisation.
And these accountants can all benefit from the diverse portfolio of events offered by ICAEW, the membership body for 150,000 chartered accountants worldwide. Currently investing your time in an ICAEW conference will give you an even greater return, as you can claim a 25% discount.
There’s a lot to choose from. Whether you’re a SME Finance Director, a FTSE 100 Financial Controller or a chartered accountant specialising in insolvency, charities or healthcare there will be an event that will suit you.
While the events may be diverse, the key elements that make them such good value remain the same. The opportunity to make new contacts in your sector is one important benefit, so there is always ample time for networking.
Then there’s high quality essential technical updates.
Importantly these are delivered by engaging speakers. To quote an attendee of one of last year’s conferences ‘Excellent speakers, highly engaging and educational – who'd have thought tax, law, financial reporting could be so interesting?!’
There’s also the chance for development and learning beyond the technical updates.
For example, at the Forensic & Expert Witness Conference, delegates will gain insight on what leading Counsel look for when instructing an expert accountancy witness.
Those at the ICAEW Valuation Conference will hear from the CEO of MacDonald’s how the fast food chain is responding to the challenges on the high street, with shrinking consumer spend.
Then attendees at the flagship two day Practice conference and expo will not only gain the essential technical updates, but have opportunity to learn how to identify and attract ideal clients, drive profitability, and discuss the future of the profession.
Titled Practice 2018: Connecting in a digital world there is inevitably a big focus on digital from making the digital transition that’s right for your practice to the rise of the robo-accountant and how you can beat them.
The rapidly evolving digital landscape is a big theme of the ICAEW flagship events. Adapting to this comes with both challenges and opportunities, which are explored across ICAEW’s events. This includes a session on big data and analytics at the CFO Conference, while the Financial Reporting Conference considers the impact of technology on corporate reporting.
In some cases, particularly with Making Tax Digital (MTD) coming into effect in April, there’s no option but to go digital and ICAEW’s events set out to support accountants with making this transition.
In October the MTD Live Expo will bring to life the array of options on offer to support the journey to digitalisation. MTD will also be an important theme of the organisation’s Tax Conference, along with other topical issues in this area, among them dealing with disputes with HMRC and commercial banking fraud.
