Getting Our Mise En Place – Skills You Need To Become a Business Trailblazer

Thursday, October 7 | 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM CT

We can learn a lot from chefs. What does getting your Mise together mean? How can it help you stay relevant in this age of exponential change?  There is a real issue of technology outpacing our ability to adapt.  But the good news is that we can get ahead of this with some basic planning.  Please join Barry Payne, Director of External Relations at AICPA & CIMA who will provide some accessible tools and frameworks for you to reflect on. 

Barry will cover:

  • What it means to work in the business, on the business and outside the business.
  • How understanding and applying the 5’cs model can help you accelerate and outperform others.
  • The skills and mindsets you need to accelerate your careers and stay ahead of the technology curve.

And how can you start?  Well, we are delighted to introduce our new partnership with AICPA & CIMA to help you gain the skills you need to become a business trailblazer. Sign up for an exclusive course from AICPA & CIMA to learn key insights and skills within accounting and finance.
