Event Information

Date: Thursday 15 May 2014
Time: 6.00pm - 9.00pm
Location: Keyworth Centre, LSBU Southwark Campus

As international accounting standards merge, financial professionals are now expected to do a lot more than number crunching. In a rapidly changing environment, are more developed skills in the areas of communication, critical thinking and risk management required?

Join us for a unique discussion featuring three leading professionals within the field of Accounting & Finance, one of whom graduated from LSBU, to answer these questions and offer a solution for existing and trainee practitioners. The discussion will be chaired by Iain Boatman, Head of the Department of Accounting & Finance at LSBU. Following the debate, you will also have the opportunity to catch up with former classmates, tutors and current students, as well as network with industry peers over drinks and nibbles.
