Tech­no­log­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion set to top CPA Con­gress

Fiji Sun - - Comment - MARAIA VULA

It’s fi­nally here! The 2019 Cer­ti­fied Prac­tis­ing Ac­coun­tants Aus­tralia-Fiji Branch Con­gress be­gins to­day. All the in­ter­na­tional speak­ers are ready to rum­ble at this year’s pre­mier event for the ac­count­ing and fi­nance pro­fes­sion.

For the 525 del­e­gates at­tend­ing the Con­gress it’s an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to learn from the speak­ers on areas they should fo­cus on in terms of skills di­rectly re­lated to their ca­reers.

The con­gress is im­por­tant for them to de­velop and up­date their skills and knowl­edge.

CPA Fiji Branch pres­i­dent Nouzab Fa­reed said del­e­gates would be able to con­nect with hun­dreds of peers and en­gage with the world’s most recog­nised thought lead­ers, pol­icy mak­ers and in­no­va­tors. “Dis­cover the ex­tra­or­di­nary ways the dig­i­tal world can work for you and ad­dress to­day’s un­prece­dented is­sues and ob­tain tan­gi­ble skills, in­sights and prac­ti­cal ideas,” he said.

“Tech­nol­ogy is com­pletely trans­form­ing how we think, feel and work.

“Over two days, del­e­gates will im­merse them­selves in tech­nol­ogy and de­velop a greater un­der­stand­ing of the dig­i­tal world and ben­e­fit from strate­gies aimed at build­ing busi­ness agility and re­silience to chang­ing mar­ket trends and learn in­no­va­tive tech­niques and prob­lem-solv­ing tac­tics.”

Del­e­gates would be able to hear from tech­nol­ogy, busi­ness and ac­count­ing ex­perts on how to make au­toma­tion and ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence change their busi­ness for the bet­ter.

Mean­while, let’s not for­get the spon­sors who have gone out of their way to give to­wards the Con­gress to en­sure its smooth run­ning.

There will also be more than 20 new CPA grad­u­ates who will be recog­nised at the Con­gress.

The Con­gress ends on Fri­day.
