In 2021, AICPA & CIMA formed a Future of Finance Group. They were charged with how to transform the profession in its broadest context and re-imagine the finance function of the future. In this candid panel discussion with members of the CFO Conference Planning Committee we will discuss the key findings from the Future of Finance Group, how these issues are keeping our panel awake at night and what they are doing to take advantage of these issues and opportunities.
