This year, major new themes include sustainability, ESG and climate change; diversity and inclusion; practice growth and resilience; people, talent, culture and wellbeing and much more.
Another big theme this year is the recruitment crisis, with sessions covering the wage war and why fewer young people are joining the profession. Some speakers will even be challenging the concept of the recruitment crisis all together.
Among the theatres, the ACCA theatre will be delivering a packed programme of educational content covering everything from tech to talent, including the AAT’s Chief Executive Sarah Beale, MAAT, FCCA, who will be part of a panel called ‘Upskilling for the future: Tackling the skills gap.’ During the session they will discuss how Accountancy employers continue to fight the effects of a skills gap within the profession. Although technical skills are critical, so too are digital skills, data literacy strategy, leadership and people management. Join the presentation as they dive into what action firms can take to support and nurture their talent and provide the necessary upskilling opportunities that support career progress and business success.
