But as the industry has embraced new tools, we have encouraged firms to look further – not just at the demands of today, but at the possibilities of tomorrow. During this session, you’ll explore important questions about how technology is changing strategic decisions within firms. We’ll look far beyond remote work capabilities to consider what the future holds for firms who are adapting their processes around technology, including:

  • Aligning your processes and culture around the latest technologies
  • Using integration and data to address staffing challenges and meet client demands
  • Leveraging emerging tech like blockchain for faster, higher-quality audits
