The CA — Magazine
Role: Researcher and Writer
The CA magazine is for members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS). The challenge as a researcher, interviewer and writer for a series of special reports on emerging tech, is focusing on what kind of world will it be when today’s newly qualified CAs reach the peak of their careers. Over the years, I’ve written about fintech, AI, digital skills and professional development, technology and the future of banking, as well as overviews of the entire legal and accountancy sectors.
“AI is in its early stages in the accountancy sector; however, as a new accounting tool, it will disrupt the accountancy industry in ways not seen since the creation of double-entry bookkeeping. That was over 5,000 years ago.
Forward-thinking professionals are choosing to embrace AI, and harness the upside of other emerging technologies such as blockchain, data analytics, cloud computing and cybersecurity.”
