There have been a number of developments within the financial community of late; technology has driven the switch to MTD, processes are becoming subject to automation, and an ever-changing working culture within our organisations has compounded the sense of unpredictability about the future of the Finance function.
And just like you, we want to be best-prepared for what is around the corner which is why our focus for this years Aqilla Customer Conference is “The Finance Professional for Tomorrow, Today”.
We are delighted to confirm our keynote speaker: Dominic Frisby (“mercurially witty” – the Spectator) is the world’s only financial writer and comedian. He co-hosted Money Pit, is MoneyWeek’s main contributor on gold, commodities, currencies and cryptocurrencies, and writes for The Guardian. He is also a published author who released Bitcoin: The Future of Money?
