Recent research from the AICPA suggests that the business environment for accountants and their clients will be characterized by “unprecedented, massive and highly accelerated change” through 2025, and likely beyond.

This session will examine the trends that are impacting our profession and offer five steps that CPAs and accountants can take to become future-ready. By the end of the session, participants have learned how to anticipate these trends and move from being crisis managers to opportunity managers. (Available in 1-3 hour format)
