Adopting technology and AI to improve productivity for finance teams

Join us for the next Finance Directors Network Dinner, where we will explore the benefits of adopting technology and artificial intelligence in the finance function of your organisation and beyond. In today’s fast-paced business environment, the remit and responsibilities of Finance Directors and their teams are growing but there are cost effective, quick wins to streamline operations and work more efficiently to counter the additional workload.

We will be joined by Andy Knowles, UST Vice President, who will share his expertise on AI adoption and transformation for finance, and Cameron Martin, CBI Senior Economist who will provide a macro-economic update.  Our economic forecasts were rated in the top three most accurate in 2023 by The Times, and our economist will give a snapshot from the H2 2024 Forecast.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand how to benefit from the efficiencies and where to start?
  • Consider the opportunities and pitfalls of technology before you invest
