Course Description

This webcast is dedicated to the possibility that the accounting profession will likely change more in the next five years than it has in the last 500. Accepting this premise is a huge challenge for many professionals as it requires them to think of a future that is very different from the past. This thinking is not for everyone. If you believe you have the desire to make this change, you are invited to join Gary Boomer of Boomer Consulting and Ed Kless of Sage as they explore Gary’s business competency model as well as other topics such as CAS (client advisory services) blockchain, and artificial intelligence.
