It’s time to accelerate digital finance transformation at your organisation: InTheBlack is returning to Singapore on 15 May.

This is BlackLine’s Accounting and Finance Innovation Summit, and our largest conference in Asia. The event combines inspirational keynotes with networking opportunities, so you can maximise value from BlackLine while learning and sharing innovative ideas with thought leaders and like-minded peers.

At this year’s conference, you’ll hear success stories from our customers, along with tips that you can implement with your teams right away.

If you’re new to BlackLine, this conference is designed for you, too. You’ll learn the strategies that forward-thinking businesses are using to move faster and be more responsive, less manual, and more transparent.

Here are some of the agenda highlights to give you a preview of what’s in store for you at InTheBlack.

Ethics in Finance: An Insider Perspective

We’re excited to announce that Andrew Fastow, the former CFO of Enron, will be a keynote speaker this year. This might not seem to make sense, but just wait—his talk will likely be one of your most memorable moments of the conference.

Fastow delivers an insider perspective on accounting, risk, fraud, and ethics. He’ll explore gray areas like whether it’s acceptable to engage in an activity that technically complies with the rules, but that may be misleading or unethical.

Therese Tucker Believes Trust is in the Balance

In our increasingly uncertain world, building and maintaining trust is more important than ever. Trust in a company might start with the CEO, but Accounting must be the steward of accurate financials.

BlackLine Founder and CEO Therese’s keynote will reveal how accounting and finance teams at every stage of their careers can help their organization build trust by embracing their new role as partners to the business and providing strategic leadership and guidance.

Connect with Our Partners

The InTheBlack Sponsor Hub will host our alliance partners from a range of organisations. EY, SAP, Deloitte, and RGP are sponsors this year, and will also be delivering thought leadership presentations from the main stage.

Plan to stop by all of the sponsor booths or connect during our networking events to discuss best practices that will help you maximise value from BlackLine.

Attend Informative Sessions

InTheBlack Singapore will also give you the chance to spend time with our experts, exploring exciting topics like how to:

  • Evaluate purpose-built automation versus gap-filling robotics

  • Automate the manual tasks that can free up your team’s time

  • Become more connected with the business and stakeholders

It’s Time to Thrive

Now is the time to explore the technology and trends that allow accounting and finance teams to thrive in this new era of continual change. You can become the catalyst your organisation needs by leading with a new perspective and innovative mindset.

Join finance and accounting thought leaders from across Asia for two full days of best practices and product deep dives, and create lasting memories as you network with your peers.

Reserve your complimentary pass for this first come, first served event.
