Making sense of the future

25 Aug 08

An unparalleled line up of speakers will be at the CA Conference at Gleneagles next week to help us make sense of the current economy, and look at what the future holds

I wasn’t at the Institute in 2002 when the last CA Conference was held. This year, the event returns and the theme is ‘Making Sense of the Future’. At a time when the world’s most eminent economic thinkers are drawing parallels between the current problems and those of the 1970s, the chance to listen to experts describing the role that professional accountants and business leaders can play in leading the economy back in to the sunshine is a very exciting one.

On the first day of the Conference Sir David Tweedie, IASB Chairman and Conrad Hewitt of the US SEC will give a global perspective on the challenges ahead. Professor Niall Ferguson of Harvard University will spell out the risks of global economic upheaval by drawing on the lessons of history.

Day two will play host to the views of RBS’ Head of Macroeconomics, Robert Gardner and global futurist Rohit Talwar, as well as many other leading business speakers. What they will all provide is an insight into the challenges all CAs will face, directly or indirectly in the coming years.
