The 2017 NABA National Convention & Expo prepared accounting, finance, and consulting professionals on how to succeed in the uncertainty of the emerging professional landscape as bold leaders who can thrive in a constantly changing global economy. By enhancing an understanding of how accounting and finance intersect with other fields and operations, attendees will learn to navigate a future which rewards those with the courage to be first, to pioneer new approaches, and to boldly rethink standard practices.
Proficiency in one area of expertise may no longer be enough to advance, yet opportunity abounds for problem-solvers and change agents with the ability to connect people, technologies, disciplines, cultures, and ideas from cross-sections of industry and society in new and more effective ways. The 2017 NABA National Convention & Expo positioned registrants to enhance their professional competencies, refine technical skills, and build personal brands as disruptors of the status quo with the competence, context, and capacity to DARE to LEAD.
