Title:

The Need to Move Fast: Quickly Pivoting for Cost and Productivity Gains

Date: Friday, 2nd September, 2020

Time: 02:00 PM BST

Duration: 1 hour

Summary:

Join us for the 10th edition of Accountancy Age Live Discussions for a complimentary one hour conversation alongside Calligo and Chris Knowles, Chief Digital Officer at RSM as we tackle the latest challenges facing the accountancy industry.

Every month, Accountancy Age will be joined by two leading practices who will share how they are tackling the challenges both within the practice as well as how they are supporting clients in these unprecedented times.

Theme:
The Need to Move Fast: Quickly Pivoting for Cost and Productivity GainsThe last few months have been turbulent for accountancy practices. The sector remains at the front line of the crisis, helping businesses and individuals navigate new support schemes, new deadlines and delays, and continually revised cash forecasts. And all this while national restrictions have impacted everyone’s working practices, putting revenue in danger and even jobs at risk. It has exposed both the impacted and the strong – the practices that were well-prepared, financially stable and operationally agile, and those that had gaps.

The question now is how the most impacted practices can rebuild to compete, and how the strong can capitalise on their position.

Talking Points:
• Ongoing resilience, and an infrastructure that allows continuously high-quality client service no matter where practitioners may work from
• Data security, in response to more threats and less control of data
• Cost-effectiveness, by removing IT costs and increasing productivity

Speakers:
• Chris Knowles, Chief Digital Officer, RSM
• Adam Ryan, Chief Services Officer, Calligo
• Tom Lemmon, Reporter, Accountancy Age

The 10th edition of Accountancy Age Live Discussions is in partnership with Calligo.
