About the Webinar
The only certainty is uncertainty. The speed, magnitude and impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic essentially put the global economy to sleep. Uncertainty and volatility are the new normal and traditional tools such as fixed budgets, quarterly forecasting, monthly reporting, slow and complex accounting and close cycles and backward-looking control and risk management processes are increasingly obsolete.
The good news is that we can be better equipped than ever before to mitigate and manage the impact. In this series of ‘future practice’ inspired sessions we will explain how talent, tools and technology can equip finance leaders to not just survive but prosper in the new world.
David Axson is a renown public speaker across the world and has worked with hundreds of companies in more than 40 countries. A reputable author and acknowledged thought-leader on strategy, finance & technology, David is a former Partner at Accenture, co-founder of The Hackett Group and Head of Corporate Planning at Bank of America.
In this fascinating discussion, including live Q&A moderated by our host Andrew Hayden from Winshuttle, David shares his insights on Accounting Close:
- Streamline and automate the ‘big three’ close activities: JV processing, cost allocations, account reconciliations.
- On-demand close visibility and control.
