Future of Finance

Melbourne | Sydney | Brisbane | Auckland

BlackLine’s coming to you

in-person this September!

Today’s business uncertainty is creating unprecedented demand for Finance and Accounting leaders to lead and be more strategic. Finance workforces are demanding more rewarding work and flexibility. It adds up to unsustainable pressure on people, processes, and technology.

Find out where to unlock valuable accounting capacity to spend time on what matters. See automation technology in action and hear real success stories on how your peers have modernised traditional accounting processes to deliver powerful measurable results.

Agenda

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Registration opens and Networking Lunch

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

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.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Breakout - BlackLine as a Business Partner: You have it, now use it!

Join us for a conversation on leveraging BlackLine as a business partner!

This session will highlight the BlackLine difference: our Collaborative Accounting Experience which guides your transformation, connects you to a community of knowledge, and is committed to your success.

During this two-hour interactive conversation, we’ll explore leading practices and discuss how you can:

  • Achieve financial operations excellence and focus on what matters most

  • Maximise your experience and optimise your time

  • Apply BlackLine solutions to address new use cases

You’ll also have the chance to ask questions, share knowledge, and network with fellow customers, solution experts, and transformation leaders.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Breakout - Future of Enterprise

Join this two-hour session specifically curated for large enterprises. During the session, we will set the record straight on:

  • Focusing on process optimisations when evaluating efficiency gains

  • How to ease the journey to an ERP upgrade with a Finance First approach

  • Benefits of Intercompany Financial Management, exploring an entirely new approach that combines process re-engineering and technology designed to get companies to zero-out intercompany balances and then go beyond to have a meaningful impact on the wider business.

We will wrap up the session with a panel discussion between SAP, Deloitte, and EY on driving sustainability from the finance seat.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
