How to solve a problem like MTD: An Agenda for Excellence

Thursday 27 September, 11am

Each year the AccountingWEB team pulls data from hundreds of Accounting Excellence awards entries to put together a snapshot of the current state of the profession. In this live, interactive session we take a look at some of the key trends and assess what they mean for the future direction of accountancy in the company of expert panellists from the profession

We will also highlight some of the obstacles and issues thrown up by these changes, and look at what our experts did and are doing to overcome them, and how they became cloud champions.

Key trends emerging from the awards data:

  • Wholesale cloud adoption
  • Uptick in data collection tools
  • Apps: best practice
  • Referrals and business advisory
  • CRM
  • Forecasting and planning tools

At the end of the session there will also be a Q&A, where audience members can send in their questions for the panellists via a chatbox.
