Keynote Topics

Data Disruption. Which new technologies impact reporting and how should I prepare?

What does the advent of new technologies mean for regulators and the regulated, their advisors and software providers? Beyond the buzzwords, beyond the frenzy, beyond the hype. Which developments must we pay attention to? What do we need to do, to learn, to create, to test, to prove and to do better to set a pathway for success? To create a roadmap for reporting that can serve us during the Fourth Industrial Revolution, that serves our societies and delivers better, more relevant and more decision-useful information for everyone. Join our experts. Join the debate.

Transforming Business. How can structured data improve outcomes?

What are we learning from around the world? What are the next steps for standardisation? This panel of innovators and industry leaders will discuss and debate where we are today and the way that countries — and companies — can stand out from the crowd. Balancing regulatory needs with industry burden. Concrete steps to help industry lower their costs and align their reporting with the way that they truly manage their organisations. Assessing the impact of ESG reporting on the bottom line, on investment and on the planet. And taking a cold hard look at the way that new technologies and new approaches can make a real difference today.
