The conference is taking place at the Novotel Edinburgh Park Hotel on Thursday 26th October. CIMA is the world’s leading, and largest, professional body of management accountants. The theme of the conference is ‘Being a Brilliant Business Partner’.
With advances in technology, the role of management accountants is changing. It is expected that they will contribute actively to strategy, planning, decision making and achievement of business results. The challenge is to make sure that people have the right skills to be effective in this wider role. This is the subject that will be addressed at the conference.
Tom’s keynote will set the scene for the conference workshops and provide an overarching view of the sub-themes of strategy, communication and change and how these are key components of successful business partnering in forward-thinking organisations.
