SNH Class – Rise Of The Humans

June 20, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Each year, the Scaling New Heights Conference offers a wide range of product training and practice development training. And…each year we introduce a highly relevant and high impact theme. At the 2018 Scaling New Heights Conference the theme is “Tame the Machines.” This year, we will design some of our breakout sessions and main stage presentations to address an imminent and unprecedented technology shift impacting accounting professionals. New and enhanced technologies like data automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are reshaping the way professionals perform services and are creating a powerful opportunity for accountants to reduce manual processes by as much as 80%. Those who fully leverage the technologies will increase profits, position their firms to scale, and generate a competitive advantage within the accounting profession. Join us in Atlanta in June 2018 to “Tame the Machines!”

Ingrid Edstrom will be teaching a great breakout session on The Rise of the Human.

As technology advances, many accounting professionals fear being replaced by machines and programs that can perform accounting tasks better and faster than humans. How can we compete?

The answer: Don’t compete. We keep hearing that the way to survive the machines is to offer more advisory services. What does that really mean? They don’t teach this stuff in school! Why try to be better than a computer at computing? A computer will never be able to match your skills at being human. This session will delve deep into the core qualities and service offerings needed to ensure that the machines will never make you obsolete.

The key learning objectives for this course include:

  • Understanding our key competitive advantages against the machines.
  • Learn how to develop and use those advantages to create a more rewarding and successful accounting practice.
  • Develop your library of learning resources to continue this journey following the conference.
