AFP launches MindShift ‘to stay ahead of the tech curve’

The Association for Financial Professionals joins forces with Oliver Wyman and Starfish Leadership to help financial professionals navigate technological changes.

The Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) is joining forces with management consultancy Oliver Wyman and Starfish Leadership to launch AFP Mindshift, an initiative to “help treasury and finance professionals navigate the rapid pace of technology and the future of work.”

The US-based AFP commented: “Treasury and finance executives are presented with a constant flow of technology solutions that intend to address challenges and capitalize on opportunities facing their organisations. The pace of innovation is accelerating through the promise of blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics, and robotic process automation.”

AFP Mindshift will aim “to help them succeed in their roles by better understanding how these disruptive technologies may impact their organisations and careers.”

The initiative will bring together innovators, disruptors and macro-trend experts that will transform the role that technology plays in corporate finance and treasury by developing solutions that drive future profitability, reduce risk, and improve operating efficiency. The exclusive group will convene twice a year to review and introduce emerging technologies and applications that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the profession.

“At no time in our profession has it been more important to stay ahead of the tech curve,” said Jim Kaitz, president and chief executive (CEO) of AFP. “Moreover, it’s our mission at AFP to ensure our members are prepared to leverage these rapidly evolving technologies in order to maximize their full potential in their organisations.”

The facilitators are the link between AFP MindShift and treasury and finance professionals. In addition to Kaitz, they include: Ori Brafman, researcher, entrepreneur, and New York Times-bestselling author; Chip Colbert, CEO of Starfish Leadership; and Leslie Chacko, director, Marsh & McLennan Companies’ Global Risk Center.

Further details on AFP MindShift will be available in a webinar, to be presented at 1:00pm EST on June 16.
