ICAEW FD Conference: How FD’s Manage The Increasing Global Economic Risk And Uncertainty
Posted on May 28, 2015
Last Wednesday, we attended and sponsored the 2015 ICAEW Finance Director Conference. This year’s event focused on the uncertainty and volatility for Finance Directors in the next couple of years, and what the impact will be on UK businesses.
The conference successfully brought together Finance Directors to discuss challenges and uncertainties on the horizon as well as providing insights to help them build resilient businesses.
Five main topics provided the key to presentations:
- A five-year plan and questions every FD needs to ask
- The value of Enterprise Performance Management in support of Sustainability and Plugging the Talent Gap
- Technical updates on Tax & Pensions
- Perspectives on business partnerships
- Challenges of leadership
For the first time at the Finance Director Conference, Aqilla proudly sponsored the drinks reception & buffet, as well as showcasing our Cloud Based Accounting and Business Solution.
After an Awards Presentation, Aqilla's Hugh Scantlebury gave a short speech on how organisations should feel genuinely good about their accounting system and what our customers experience in terms of saving time, money and worry.

After this month’s General Election, uncertain challenges may require all Finance Directors to anticipate and adapt to change. Last week’s conference was therefore an essential event for the modern FD to both gain useful insight as well as engage with their peers.
