Kreston Futures Emerging Talent Conference

Last Thursday, our Kreston Global network held their first Kreston Futures Emerging talent conference, for all our Kreston people at Manager, Associate, and equivalent levels across the network.

Hosted by our own Jovana Vlajic and Vinoth Pushparaj from Kreston Sri Lanka, we heard from our keynote speaker Rob McGillen from CBIZ about how generative AI is an enabler for the accounting profession and how we can take advantage of it.

After breakout discussions, panel discussion, chaired by Emily Baldwin from Kreston Reeves and featuring tech recruitment expert Nevena Sofranic, founder of referral based hiring platform Recrooit and ACCA’s Clive Webb on where the profession is heading over the next few decades and what younger current and future recruits consider essential to them in their accounting careers.

Our delegates had lively debates in their group sessions and have given us valuable insight into how we can continue to support our younger talent across the network as part of our  Kreston Futures programme.
