General Sessions

Presented by: James C. Bourke, CPA, CITP, CFF, CGMA - Director of Firm Technology and Managing Director of Advisory Services at WithumSmith+Brown

In this keynote session, Jim Bourke will discuss technology’s role in keeping our profession functional and relevant. The recent pandemic forced change onto our profession and with that change came massive disruption on how we do business and collaborate with our clients.

We will all agree that selecting the “right” technologies was a recent differentiator in an organization’s ability to survive. Some in our profession struggled with client service, some encountered challenges with a remote workforce while others did not miss a beat.

Jim will share his perspective on what he witnessed during 2020 – the good and the bad, and he’ll share some of the best practices for technology in our space.

As bad as the pandemic was (and continues to be), Jim will share the silver lining that organizations should be capitalizing on to not only drive revenue and growth, but more importantly, to drive client confidence in us as their “Trusted Advisors.”

You’ll walk away from this session with a new appreciation and awareness about some of the unique technologies that are ready to take our profession to the next level as well a clear directive to your IT support personnel on the technologies and platforms that should currently be under consideration to allow your practice to function whether your staff are working in the office or working remotely. 

More sessions coming soon!
