Sarah Hathaway, head of ACCA UK, said: 'This event aims to bring finance professionals, academics and anyone interested in the future of accountancy together to discuss how the profession will evolve over the coming years.

'We’re extremely pleased to have Rohit as our keynote speaker, along with a panel of experts to talk about the issues at hand.

Faye Chua, head of futures research at ACCA, said: 'It’s important to identify the drivers of change in the business world, so that the potential challenges and opportunities which could face the business world, society and the profession are identified and acted upon.

'Without discussions such as this, organisations may never adapt accordingly to the ever-changing conditions.'

The free event is being held at the Museum of London on 6 June, 1.30pm to 3.30pm. It is an open debate, however advance booking is required.
