EXCEED 2020: Accounting Towards a New Paradigm


Last February 22, 2020, an Accounting Convention was organized by the DLSU – JPIA chapter entitled Exceed 2020 Accounting towards a new paradigm. The CKSC JPIAns attended the said event and were able to not only gather information about the future of accountancy, but also learn about the different industries in our society today from the distinguished guests.

 

The event started with a plenary, having Tireso Lapidez of KPMG, Mailene Sigue – Bisnar of P&A Grant Thorton, Johnny Ang of SGV & Co. and Maria Gomez of PwC. The guests shared what they look for in the applicants of the firm, such as how they look for talent and ask applicants situational questions. They were also able to share how the accountancy profession affects their personal life, particularly their family. They shared their experience in the accountancy profession as well as the effect of new technology in our society and how we could better adapt to it. Although they have different opinions as to how Artificial Intelligence could affect the accountants, they all agree that this innovation would help the profession in terms of efficiency.
