The Professional Accountant in Business (PAIB) Conference is back after a lengthy break.
The local and international scenario presents added challenges for CEOs and CFOs who must not only retain their current business but grow it, too. The Malta Institute of Accountants is pleased to collaborate with the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and Accountancy Europe to create this unique space where senior executives can exchange perspectives and opportunities. The event is supported by The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry.
21st Century Skills
The PAIB Conference will discuss employee skills envisaged for the 21st century: from upskilling strategies for the current workforce to planning for the next generation of accountants. Representatives from IFAC will present the main insights from an inhouse report on the future-fit Accountant, "A Vision for the CFO and Finance Function". A special panel will then discuss central themes including:
  • The Financial Function of the Future
  • Shifting from Accounting for the Balance Sheet to Accounting for the business
  • Digitalisation of Finance and Accounting momentum
  • Developing the vision and enabling transformation
  • The implications for professional accountancy organisations.
Sustainable economy
Accountancy Europe will lead a session on environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility in the wake of an EU drive to promote sustainable business. Accountancy Europe is currently conducting research into this area to chart new methods that promote conservation of resources and sustainable economies as part of good corporate governance.
Ethical business
The PAIB Conference will also examine the concepts of good corporate governance and ethical behaviour and how they benefit businesses. Speakers will discuss the functional consequence of ethical guidelines and good practice on business results and crisis-avoidance. Some of the questions that the session will address are:
  • Are business ethics really that important?
  • What are the practical benefits?
  • How can businesses avert scandal by employing good ethical behaviour?
The question of talent
Thought leaders from main stakeholders will focus on the struggles felt by local businesses to attract and retain Human Resource. Participants will hear from a balanced panel featuring representatives from the Malta Employers Association, industry, economics, and recruitment.
