#BillGates said, “Banking is necessary, banks are not”. Have we thought about “Accounting is necessary, accountants are not”?
#Accounting, #Auditing and #Finance professionals are used to have a peace of mind in earning secured income and having great prosperity. However, another #NewNORMAL has come to them in this decade and they have to respond well to keep flourishing for their career.
While these professions are still very important to us, many of them are in high risks of losing their jobs to #AI and #BigData in this decade.
According to PWC, 30% of our current jobs will be automated by AI by 2030. Accounting and Finance is ranked as the top tier of the list. How should the professionals and students in the profession prepare themselves for this tsunami? The answer is #DataLiteracy.

ACCA Hong Kong CFO Summit 2018 was successfully held today. This year’s main theme was AI and EI (Emotional Intelligence). We shared a lot on what AI can do but more importantly what people can do but AI cannot. Our human capability on managing EQ is one of the examples. ACCA published a great report on this. It also mentioned 7 quotients that we should have not only to improve our work but also differentiate us from AI. You may download the report here. http://fqrct.com/t/57d5db3 Thanks for ACCA inviting me to be a panel speaker there and organizing such a great conference including Jane Cheng Teddy Liu Natalie, Leo, Eunice, Venus Tang (鄧麗華) Morison Chan many more friends in ACCA.
A seminar is held by ACCA regarding to the recent hot topic ‘BIG DATA’ for its members and students. Dr. Toa Charm and Dr. Lawrence Wong are invited to share their views and experience of the big data era with finance and accounting professionals.
Big data is a hot topic these days among not only technologists but also business leaders in the West and the East. What is Big Data exactly? What roles should finance professionals play in the Big Data Era? Finance professionals should ride on their traditional score-keeper role and actively play more a role in business transformation and focus more on financial implications of strategy execution. Given the integration of increasingly rich data about markets, sales, customers, internal operations, external information and unstructured data, finance professionals can productively use such information and identify opportunities to accelerate growth and enhance profitability of the company.
This workshop aims to help finance and accounting professionals and executives to understand big data and its implication to their profession, learn how to answer the above mentioned questions more accurately, faster and most of the time cheaper, and ultimately transform themselves from playing a traditional finance role to a value-creating leader in the Big Data Era.
