Opening Keynote - Keynote - New world. New ways.
Welcome to the Future of Finance.
Our world of work and mindsets have changed. Everything from how and where we work to our environmental footprint. In our new reality, businesses are re-imagining, re-shaping and resetting.
Business leaders are increasingly relying on Finance & Accounting to support new initiatives and strategic priorities. F&A leaders must find opportunities to optimise F&A processes to ensure their teams are well positioned to support these initiatives on top of their traditional responsibilities.
In this keynote, Director of Advocacy, Susan Parcells, will join us in person from BlackLine HQ to give a fresh perspective on how you can unlock valuable accounting capacity to spend time on what matters.
Customer spotlight - From concept to reality
In this fireside chat, hear real success stories from your F&A peers on how they have modernised traditional accounting processes to deliver powerful, measurable results. Learn how these finance leaders delivered change, implemented new processes, and confronted cultural challenges in their finance transformation journey.

Breakout - Your F&A journey beyond the reset for mid-sized organisations
Come join us for a journey.
It is 2022, and we have seen a reset. There is a change in the scope of roles for finance and accounting. The world is in flux, and accounting teams are struggling with capacity issues as the required compliance, controls, evolution, and other record-to-report work leaves little to no time to meet the demands of their expanding roles.
The faster you can deliver real-time information, the better your organisation can navigate these uncertain times. Join us on a journey that will show new ways to accelerate your finance transformation and create more time for analysis and allow F&A to serve as strategic advisors to the business, arriving at Modern Accounting Nirvana.
