Responding to Disruption: Opportunities for Finance

As finance officers we seem to be subject to increasing amounts of disruption in our environment: business, technical, political, to name a few. Uber, AirBnB, legal cannabis, etc are changing the way we need to regulate and tax businesses. Digital payments, social media and transparency demands are changing the way we relate to citizens. New politicians who want to operate differnently are demanding change in our methods. How we will respond – that is our challenge. At our National Conference in October, in addition to our regular conference features, we will host several sessions specifically addressing disruption and how we can respond so that it is transformed from a threat to an opportunity.
