The Power of Digital – Navigating the Accountancy Professional In the Digital Age
October 2, 2019 @ 12:30 pm
Guest Speaker: Mr Maurice Cheong, the Head of ACCA Australia & New Zeeland
TIIS were honoured to have Mr Maurice Cheong, the Head of ACCA Australia & New Zealand, present to our professionaldevelopment program (International Learning & Development Program or ILDP) on Wednesday, 2 October 2019. His topic was “The Power of Digital – Navigating the Accountancy Professional In the Digital Age”. It was a very interesting and contemporary topic where not only the accounting professionals/students were engaged, but also other professionals and guests. The topic made everyone aware that we are “living the future”, things that were just Science Fiction in the movies a few decades ago are now part of our lives: artificial intelligence, devices that talk to us, bionic implants, holograms, artificial insemination, manipulating data using movements and gestures, and so much more. The artificial intelligence is not there to replace accounting professionals, but to enhance their ability to interpret data efficiently and effectively and provide support to individuals and organisations.
