Leaning into Tech 2022

About the event

This year Accounting Technicians Ireland is partnering with The Future of Work Institute, A Cpl company to bring you ‘Leaning Into Tech 2022’ Virtual Conference on Wednesday 13 July 2022.

ATI’s Conference, chaired by Jenny Darmody, Deputy Editor with Silicon Republic, explores three distinct areas of future working: The Digital Workspace Experience; The Future of Audit & the Data Security Challenges of Working from Anywhere.

You’ll hear from expert speakers from the world of tech such as IBM’s Futurist Manisha Singh, Talent & Transformation Partner discussing the Digital Workspace Experience, the emergence of the Virtual Enterprise and the new possibilities this creates for work efficiencies and collaboration. Manisha will illustrate how we can learn from IBM’s story in order to re-energise our teams and culture, to re-skill technologically and to start to re-write the play-book on employee and customer experience.

Fiona Gaskin, Partner Trust & Transparency, Pwc Ireland will explain how the scope of Audit is changing with the introduction of sustainability reporting and what it will mean for finance teams, how conveying trust and demonstrating transparency to your key stakeholders is more important than ever. Fiona will highlight the essential skills needed in finance teams to prepare for these changes and the role technology will play in shaping the Future of Audit.

Audrey G Flynn from The Data Protection Commission will discuss the Data Security Challenges of Working from Anywhere. It’s been 4 years since the GDPR came into application and the Commission will provide a sense check on how well we have been demonstrating compliance with the law given the acceleration of digital working and the proliferation of cybercrime.
