The 2018 CIPFA annual conference will be held at Bournemouth International Centre on 11-12 July 2018.

This year’s theme is Talent, Technology, Transformation: Mapping the digital future. We’ll be asking how the finance function should adapt, what talent is needed to maximise the potential of the tech revolution and how this can cut costs, improve productivity and reshape public services.

  • TALENT to identify improvement
  • TECHNOLOGY to streamline/ automate and/or educate and ultimately reduce costs
  • TRANSFORMATION of services and delivery
