As a profession, CPAs are at the tipping point of fully harnessing artificial intelligence, RPA, and analytics with ease. The market has accepted that these technologies will impact every function a CPA is already performing - audits, reviews, transaction services, risk advisory, fraud, and controls management. Firms and enterprises alike are investing in technology and skill development, while preparing for massive transformation. In addition, CPAs, with their technical mindset, commitment to continuous professional development, and close affinity to critical business data, are well positioned to deliver value using these technologies.
But technologies like AI, RPA, or analytics in-and-of-itself have a hard time standing on their own - in fact, 70% of transformation projects fail. BCG partner Sylvain Duranton says the real formula for success is: Algorithms (10%) + Technology (20%) + People & Process (70%). Is this the magic needed to create the AI-powered human, where judgement is greatly enhanced by technology?
Join to learn from our insights over the past 5 years, and how to get your team ready for the shift to becoming a technology-powered firm.

In this session, we will talk about the necessity of upgrading leadership skills and more intentional development of future leaders to meet the demands of the Next New Normal. The new normal will be a hybrid of people working from home which will require enhanced leadership.
How many times have you interviewed and hired candidates who just didn’t work out? They looked good on paper and interviewed well. They were smart and likable. What happened? Did you ask the right questions? Were they truthful with you? Or is it really only luck or a guess?
There is a more predictable way to hire. You could hire to your firm’s culture.
Every firm has its own unique culture that is perfect for some candidates. Conversely, there are some people who would not fare so well. In order to interview for ideal employees, firm leaders must be clear about their firm culture to determine the right candidates.
Once you know the kind of candidate who will do well in your firm, it is easier to interview.
In this session we will explore the impact multi-directional change has on leadership. Whether spurred by technology, competitors, an ever-increasing diverse workforce, clients, expansion of service lines, or some other source, leaders must be nimble and prepare themselves for the responsibility of being effective in volatile, uncertain, and sometimes controversial times as the pace of change accelerates.
