Trust and transformation at the Audit and Assurance Conference
Even if you were unable to attend the ICAEW Audit and Assurance Faculty’s recent virtual conference, you can benefit from the session recordings.
Trust and transformation were the themes for the Financial Reporting, Audit and Assurance Conference in October 2021 and they are particularly apt. As Iain Wright, Managing Director, Reputation and Influence, at ICAEW, notes in his welcome: “Corporate scandals in recent years, undermining public
and parliamentary trust, long-term forces at play such as sustainability and the rise of stakeholder capitalism, and technology transforming business practices and processes, make the themes of this conference particularly relevant.”
Financial reporting, audit and assurance have been subject to unprecedented change and volatility, with more on the horizon. The keynote address by Sir Jon Thompson, CEO of the UK’s Financial Reporting Council (FRC) sets the stage for the conference and for coming changes.
