Co-Presented by Elinor Litwack, CPA

In a CAS practice the technology, processes and roles are different than other service lines in the firm. Though technical training can be organized as crossover trainings, the exact skills to be successful in the various roles of a CAS department needs it’s own curriculum. In this session we will discuss ways to train your CAS team from entry level to virtual controller and CFOs. Communicating career path options is important for employee engagement and firm growth. This includes developing additional skill sets and knowledge on tools that are key to the productivity and profitability of the services.

Join this panel to hear about innovations taking place and hear them share their vision for more potential. Are you ready to capitalize on AI? Have you begun to formulate your vision? Consider the Chinese Proverb, the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.
