These are turbulent times, and the ability to predict and adapt to change is at a premium. “Making Sense of the Future”, then, seems a highly appropriate theme for the CA Conference, taking place on 4 and 5 September this year at the prestigious Gleneagles Hotel, Perthshire.

Among the eminent speakers will be:

  • Sir David Tweedie, chairman of the International Accounting Standards Board;
  • Rohit Talwar, futurist and senior adviser to governments and CEOs;
  • Robert Gardner, senior economic advisor with RBS Group Economics;
  • Stewart Hamilton, a leading CA and professor at IMD business school, Lausanne;
  • Richard Reeves, an expert on working trends; and
  • Charan Gill, founder of the Harlequin Group of restaurants.

The after-dinner speaker is golf legend Peter Alliss and there will be a golf tournament.
