Advising Beyond Numbers Conference

Todays Accountant - Advising Beyond Numbers

Dublin - Friday 18th November

Cork - Friday 25th November

The remit of an accountant now spans far wider than books and figures. Todays accountant is expected to be innovative, strategic and forward-thinking. CPA Ireland Skillnet will run 2 conferences on 'Today's Accountant - Advising Beyond Numbers' addressing the many topics accountants today must be familiar with to advise beyond numbers.

Sessions will include:

Finance Today

Strategy - The Role of the Accountant
Speaker: Olwen Dawe, Irish Business Intelligence

The role of the accountant invariably strays far beyond day-to-day financial and accounting guidance and advice.  Indeed, both clients and colleagues rely on the perspective and insight an accountant can bring to their business or department.  But how can we effectively manage these relationships and expectations, ensuring the advice we provide ‘beyond the numbers’, is measurable and operational? This session will provide key tips on providing strategic advice, and how to maximise its impact.
