First Intuition Think Tank (FITT) Forums

First Intuition’s Think Tank Forums started during the pandemic as a way to keep clients up to date with the ever-changing situation and how it was impacting the accountancy and finance industry. Two years on, though less pandemic focused, these forums are still informing employers on the latest and relevant accountancy and finance industry news. The sessions offer views, experiences, and advice/ tips from expert speakers on a range of topics that are currently affecting businesses.

Below you will find summaries and recordings of previous FITT forums in 2022.

Previous 2022 FITT Forums

Do we ALL need data literacy skills?

As the use of digital technologies becomes more prominent in the accountancy space, we look at whether, going forward, all accountants are going to need some form of data literacy skills in order to stay competitive in the industry.

We heard from expert speakers as they discussed:

  • What we mean by data literacy
  • Whether we all need to improve our data literacy skills
  • How we can improve our data literacy skills (technical and non-technical skills)

The Growing Role of Digital Technologies and Data Analytics in Accountancy and Finance

Accountants and other finance professionals are increasingly exposed to a variety of digital technologies which are changing the nature of the activities they spend time on, and the skills they therefore need to develop.

In particular, the huge amounts of data that organisations create can be manipulated in increasingly sophisticated ways to generate commercial insight to support and improve decision-making.

This session took a closer look at these new digital technologies, how they are changing roles in accountancy and finance, why they are important for the growth of the industry, and what employers can do to keep up with these changing technologies.
