The conference is geared toward accounting professionals and promises a deep and innovative look at accounting technology. Learning courses offering CPE credit and multiple networking opportunities will round out the AI Unchained offerings, all kicked off by Klopp’s keynote.
“AI Unchained celebrates and advances the innovative spirit of the accounting profession, which today is unquestionably driven by technology,” said Botkeeper Founder and CEO Enrico Palmerino, “As a lifetime business innovator and visionary, Hap embodies the values, curiosity, and leadership that define today’s accounting professionals. We’re thrilled to have him speak at our very first AI Unchained.”
Klopp founded San Francisco’s now-famous outdoor equipment and clothing retailer The North Face with two small storefronts in 1968. Over 20 years as CEO and President, Hap built the company into an internationally recognized brand that arguably launched the outdoor retail segment as we know it
Klopp’s next adventure was the founding of HK Consulting, which specializes in strategy, global business, marketing, branding and sales for sports, apparel and financial services companies. He sits on multiple boards, and speaks internationally about entrepreneurship, leadership, and of course—adventuring.
Klopp is co-author of two books, “Conquering the North Face: An Adventure in Leadership,” and “Almost–12 Electric Months Chasing a Silicon Valley Dream.”
