Webcast summary

There’s never been a more exciting time in finance and accounting. Rapidly-changing regulations, expectations for greater timeliness and accuracy of financial information, and increasingly complex financial processes all represent new opportunities for finance teams to demonstrate their value to their overall organizations.

Modern Finance is a commitment to operational excellence and to automating routine transactions and processes so that finance teams can redirect their focus from performing tasks to contributing expertise.

This Webcast, featuring The Hackett Group and BlackLine, explores how organizations that have embraced Modern Finance are leveraging technology to reduce day-to-day burdens while transforming the roles of their finance teams.

CPA Trendlines Research finds that accounting firms are taking risks far beyond just 'getting behind' when it comes to having weak tech systems.
The recent “Accounting Firm Operations and Technology Survey,” published by CPA Trendlines Research, shows these risks go beyond merely “falling behind” the technology curve because of traditionally penny-wise, pound-foolish spending. At one time, “falling behind” risked obsolescence, or worse, ...

Some wonder if they should continue the investments, but all they really should do is to refocus their FP&A teams.

SOCIAL MEDIA:  I'm a big fan.  I'm most active on LinkedIn.  Not really a fan of Facebook, but that is mostly to communicate with family.  New to G+, like it, and trying to learn as fast as I can.

FITNESS:  I have been a competitive athlete for most of my life in various sports.  I've competed at a local, state, regional, and national level in Olympic Style Tae Kwon Do and have been a coach/instructor.  I would rather play than watch.  If I'm watching it is probably football or something martial arts related.

HEALTH:  I do my best at trying to be as healthy as possible.  Sometimes I'm successful and sometimes I'm not.  I like to learn as much as I can about a healthy lifestyle including things outside of "traditional" medicine and simply popping a pill.

GIVING BACK:  I have been involved with Habitat for Humanity and Susan G. Komen for the Cure (3 Day Walk).  Although I haven't walked in a few years, I try to help out as much as possible with one of the best 3 Day teams in Dallas - Pink Soles in Motion!
