Description

Andrew Harding, Chief Executive Officer at CIMA, will be giving a keynote speech on how digital disruption is driving radical transformation in the finance sector.

Digital disruption is driving radical transformation in finance. AI, blockchain and advanced data analytics are challenging the relevance of traditional skills while creating transformative opportunities for organisations and individuals.

To thrive you need a skill set and mindset that constantly adapts at pace with the blistering rate of change.

In our Future of Finance survey, the immediate need to take on new competencies emerged as the main theme. Businesses are being redefined by the A-E of finance: automation, blockchain, cyber-security, data analytics, as well as everything else that surrounds them. To survive and succeed, finance professionals need to be digitally agile.

You have got to go beyond insight to drive impact, beyond limits to deliver solutions and beyond expectations to create value.
