Beyond This Horizon: How the World Has Changed- and Is Changing

How do you turn future uncertainty into a competitive advantage? That is the true challenge that future professionals in finance and accounting face in a world that has changed radically, and that continues changing as we watch. Futurist and business visionary Richard Worzel, C.F.A. will assess what has happened to the world, what the downstream effects of that are, and where we are likely to go from here.
