Immersive web event: How Accountants Can Ensure Business Resilience for the Next Pandemic
^ Click to play: Your host Donny Shimamoto invites you to join the Business Resilience Workshop
Hosted by Donny Shimamoto
COVID-19 created an unprecedented economic crisis that accountants were called upon to triage and stop continued economic bleeding. Accountants had to help many business owners and colleagues make difficult business decisions that often went well beyond just finance. In this workshop, we’ll examine the “new normal,” the multi-faceted role that accountants play in economic triage, and the building of business resilience.
We’ll explain how core accountant skills like risk management and financial planning & analysis—and their supporting technologies—combine with our core competencies of ethics and objectivity, to play critical roles in driving better business decision-making. Better business decision-making and business continuity Planning enable more business agility and holistic business strategies—creating a more resilient business that can easily pivot when the next pandemic occurs.
This workshop will feature the following topics from thought leaders in the profession:
- Life and technology post-COVID-19; Rick Richardson, CPA.CITP, CGMA, and a CPA Trendlines expert author
- How Accountants Can Help Build Business Resilience; Donny Shimamoto, CPA.CITP, CGMA
- Surviving, Pivoting and Thriving in the New Normal; Jennifer Elder, CSP, CPA
- Scenario Planning for Future Readiness; Steve Player, CPA
There will also be two hours of virtual group work to help you practice applying the concepts from the lecture so that you leave the workshop ready to utilize the learning on your organization or with clients.
