Financial directors: Are you up to speed with the latest accountancy trends?

From considerations for GDPR, to protecting IP and budgeting for IT, as a financial director or controller you’ll be spinning many plates.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) is running an event “Update for accountants in industry conference 2017” to help busy finance directors and finance controllers understand the key industry issues.

With speakers from the Bank of England and Intellectual Property Office, the conference – on 10th October in Northamptonshire – will enable attendees to seek advice and information to maximise their time in and out of the office.

David Starsmeare, Solutions Consultant Team Leader at Mirus, will be speaking at the event and will share key information on GDPR and how it will affect IT.
