Ugh, it’s overtalked, we know. As if you’d be planning for anything else other than the future. As if planning for the future hasn’t always been crucial. The 21st century just thinks it’s special with its MacBook Airs and outsourced labour.
Oh well. The good news is that planning for the future is nothing new, so you should all know how to do it.
That’s the problem with the future though – all we know of it is the little baby bump it shows today – but really, we don’t have a clue whether it’s going to be a boy or a girl, whether it’s an athlete or a mathlete, or whether it’ll have Mum’s nose or Dad’s chin. But we can still prepare for its arrival.
So here’s what May’s all about for us.
We’re talking about the future of the accounting profession and all the things we accountants never really thought would actually become a part of the profession – we’re talking everything from Twitter to big data to overseas competition to a new kind of accounting – one that we can’t even fully predict yet.
See you in the future.
