"What is driving change in our profession? The fuel is TECHNOLOGY". 

GBD54. We sat down recently at AICPA & CIMA's London Office with Jim Bourke, CPA, CITP, CFF, CGMA, and Managing Director of Advisory Services for US-based WithumSmith+Brown. Visiting the UK on a speaking tour, Jim's passion for the profession is clear as he discusses the technological changes that will offer profound opportunities. He outlines the digital mindsets that will help our profession move forward, and describes the trends that will fuel today's teams as they drive into tomorrow.



  • WHO Drives Digital Change in A Business?
  • How NON-techies drive tech-based transformation.
