Corporate Finance Upskilling Study Results: Webcast Preview and Panel Discussion

Chicago, IL—July 6, 2022— The results of a national study on the Upskilling and Reskilling of Corporate Finance departments will be previewed and analyzed by a panel of experts during a Live Webcast scheduled for Wednesday July 20, 1 PM CST.

The Corporate Finance Upskilling/Reskilling Study was conducted in the Spring of 2022 via a national survey of Controllers, CFOs and related titles. The study identified macro-trends including the “Great Resignation”, a growing shortage of Accountants and CPAs, and remote/hybrid work environments as drivers for a massive movement toward automating and streamlining accounting and finance back-office operations, which then required Upskilling or Reskilling and training of both staff and executives.

The webcast preview will provide a first look at the results of this breakthrough study, along with analysis by a panel of experts including Judy Romano, CFO of Sage North America; Russ Porter, CFO of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), and Neil Brown, Executive Director of the Controllers Council.

“The Corporate Finance Upskilling/Reskilling Study is the first to identify a massive shift to software, automation and the required training for effectiveness and sustainability”, states Neil Brown, Controllers Council Executive Director. “This webcast and panel discussion will share the results of this important initiative, and all registrants will receive a copy of the study report.”

The study and complimentary webcast are produced by the Controllers Council, a member association and community focused on accounting and corporate finance training and resources, career development, networking and recognition. The study is sponsored by Sage Intacct.
