Future of Law Firms, Accountancy, Auditing and Global Consulting Companies, Professional Service Firms - keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Law Firms, Accountancy, Professional Services

There are very few global consulting and accounting firms, and this is already causing big problems for regulators, unhappy when the same companies audit the same accounts for years. We should be worried when auditors are from the same organisation as consultants, when huge companies find members of their teams on both sides of complex deals. It is hardly surprising that so many audits of multinationals have turned out to be so misleading to investors.

Arthur Andersen disappeared almost overnight as a result of the Enron scandal, and it will only take one more such event to create a crisis, because only three global firms would remain. Expect further regulations about companies needing to change their auditors every few years, and more restrictions on conflicts of interest.

As I predicted, Auditors are becoming more strictly audited themselves regarding their own performance.  Auditors will increasingly be held legally responsible when banks or insurers or other types of company fail spectacularly, soon after a clean audit. It is outrageous that global auditors have been able to walk away without penalty, from large companies that collapse, only days or weeks after being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to vet them for accounting irregularities and risks.

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Law Firms, Accountancy, Professional Services

Article written in 2020, video forecasting these accounting trends made at a KPMG event in 2008 - core messages very similarTax rates will continue to converge globally in many sectors and industries as governments compete for global investment. Nations with higher corporate tax rates will see companies shift HQs, factories, offices, research and development. So governments will be forced to keep their own taxation and regulations in step with the global norm.Global corporations will continue to use all kinds of elaborate accounting mechanisms to avoid tax, moving profits from one nation to another, exploiting whatever differences remain, attracting public criticism and resentment in the process....

Compliance is dead - except to keep you out of prison. Why Compliance cannot protect your brand or build trust. How to go beyond compliance to do what is ethical, morally right today and in future

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Law Firms, Accountancy, Professional Services

"Compliance is dead except as a defensive strategy to stay out of prison." New risks, new regulations and additional compliance issues - compliance is about conforming to existing regulations, based on past legislation, created as a reaction to historic events.  You can comply perfectly in every year with every regulation and still find yourself under severe attack in future, with huge reputational damage to business and brand, because public mood and expectations change.  So banks and other organisations need to go beyond mere compliance in order to protect their future.  Implications for legal advice and compliance teams.
