This year’s CPA Congress focuses on two main themes:
Accounting for The Robots
Many routine accounting tasks will be fully automated using AI-based technologies, which will disrupt the accounting profession. Seeing the opportunity that comes from artificial intelligence, blockchain and robotic process automation, and understanding the future skills needed in the finance roles is key to a smooth transition.
The Future of Digital Money
The digitisation of money will increasingly blur the distinction between money and data. The opportunities are limitless, but the obstacles to creating, managing and regulating digital forms of capital are critical to consider. Demystifying the world of digital currency and tokens will prepare financial professionals for its impact on businesses.
CPA Congress is a global event taking place in seven Australian cities plus New Zealand, Fiji, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and London, giving G100 members ample opportunities to attend. The first event starts in Perth between 7 – 9 October, followed closely by Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Hobart and Adelaide. For the full list of CPA Congress details, visit the website.
