Finance Leadership & Development
Professional accountants need to respond to the continually changing expectations of their organizations, the financial markets, and society. In addition, many accountants aspire to finance leadership roles, such as chief financial officer (CFO). As a result, they must fulfill their traditional responsibilities, while increasing their support of strategic and operational decision-making. Through education, life-long learning, and development, they must acquire the right mixture of skills, experiences, and attitudes, including leadership, strategy, business, management, and interpersonal skills. See the full overview.
The “Anticipatory Accountant” and demonstrating personal accountability in leadership were among the key themes discussed at Digital CPA in Las Vegas—the IFAC Global Knowledge Gateway team provides coverage of the speakers and trends.
