Sameer will discuss how finance folks need to up their game to remain relevant and make a mark in boardrooms. It's time for them to unlearn and relearn and appreciate the new world and become business advisors and not just accountants. They need to catch trends (a trend is your friend) and use them to analyse and predict the future. It's all about a deep dive into the cost structure and eliminate flab, exploring new business models such a XaaS, new revenue generating streams like pay for use, and lastly refinancing debt. Since accountants have a bird's eye view of the end-to-end operations and the unique ability to compare a SWOT with the competition, they can add real value. Sameer will share real time examples of what you can do.
The learning outcomes from Sameer's presentation include:
- A better understanding on how accountants need to change their thought processes.
- An overview of the new age skills required.
- Tips on how to mine data – data refining, to tweak existing business models and develop new ones.
