General #1: Are You Working Too Hard or Not Hard Enough?
Ms. Denise Ryan ( FireStar Speaking, Raleigh, NC ),

¨ How to be more disciplined
¨ How to think more critically

General #3: Moving Beyond Diversity
Tru Pettigrew ( TruAccess, Cary, NC ),

“Organizations have spent tremendous resources in an attempt to increase diversity. This is understandable as evidence demonstrates that diversity drives innovation, increases creativity, allows for better recruiting, less turnover, and having a stronger place in the market.  
What associations and organizations across the country are quickly realizing however, is that diversity (a state-of-being) cannot be the end goal. Instead, the act of developing safe, open, and inclusive environments for all to collaborate and co-exist is the greatest need and challenge.
This session informs the audience how to go beyond diversity and leverage the power of inclusion. Attendees understand how activating the richness of diversity that is available to them can help them to deliver the more inclusive, collaborative, and productive environments their members, employees, and partners crave.”

2B: Lead with Purpose
Tru Pettigrew ( TruAccess, Cary, NC ),

““Leadership is the process of influencing people by providing them with purpose, vision, and direction to accomplish the mission for the greater good of the group, family, or organization. And when purpose is not present, dysfunction is inevitable.”
People are not only seeking purpose in their personal lives, but they want to align themselves with organizations that have, and provide them with a sense of purpose. People are seeking to align themselves with brands and organizations that “lead with purpose.” Learn how to become one of those organizations.
This session equips organizations with the insights, process, and tools to effectively lead with purpose, while simultaneously empowering its members to do the same. Benefits include increased productivity, elevated morale, and a more inclusive and collaborative culture.”

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 (2:05 pm–3:10 pm ET)

2C: Effective Crisis Communications
Dr. Gary Kohut, PhD ( UNC Charlotte-The Belk College of Business, Charlotte, NC ),

“Planning for a crisis is not a luxury; it is a necessity. Unplanned events and unexpected accidents represent normal and inevitable elements of running a business. In such instances, the effectiveness of contingency plans, and the way in which they are implemented, will determine the overall outcome. Being able to respond strongly and competently to any imaginable crisis is the mark of a reliable and robust business. By contrast, businesses unable to cope with potential crises are each day facing a dangerously uncertain future. What can change your organization’s fate is how you communicate before, during, and after a crisis.  
This session is designed for practical applications of crisis communication principles. Participants will learn how to anticipate crises, recognize what communication problems look like, distinguish the different phases of crises and how to deal with them, identify the role of a crisis communication team, and learn how to write a crisis communication plan. Crises don’t happen just on the front page. They occur every day, affect organizations of all types, and come in different shapes and sizes. Every organization needs to have effective crisis communications in its crisis management tool chest.”

7A: Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) – Making It Work
Mr. Gary Cokins, CPIM ( Cary, NC ),

“Many organizations are far from where they want and need to be when it comes to improving performance. Often, they apply intuition, rather than hard data, when making decisions. Financial planning and analysis (FP&A) is now viewed as the seamless integration of managerial methods such as strategy execution; enterprise risk management (ERM); driver-based budgeting; profitability and cost analysis (using activity-based costing [ABC] principles); and lean and Six Sigma quality management. FP&A is synonymous with enterprise and corporate performance management (EPM/CPM). Each method should be embedded with business analytics of all flavors, such as correlation and regression analysis; and especially predictive and prescriptive analytics to yield the best (ideally optimal) decisions. Learning objectives:
1.How to view FP&A as the seamless integration of managerial methods rather than as a process.
2.Understand how business analytics is an advance over business intelligence and where big data fits in.
3.How to identify and differentiate strategic KPIs in a strategy map’s balanced scorecard and operational performance indicators (PIs) in dashboards.
4.How to properly calculate product, service-line, channel, and customer profitability for analysis, insights, and actions.
5.How to perform “predictive accounting” for capacity-sensitive driver-based budgets/rolling financial forecasts, what-if analysis, and outsourcing decisions”

8A: 2019 Professional Ethics & Conduct
Dr. Cal Christian, CPA, PhD ( East Carolina University-College of Business, Greenville, NC ),

This course by Cal Christian is offered in a group-study format allowing participants and the discussion leader to interact and discuss ethical issues facing the profession. North Carolina Professional Ethics and Conduct (NCPEC) rules are just one subsection of the set of rules and standards governing North Carolina CPAs. However, the importance of professional ethics merits an in-depth study, because always making the right decision is hard! Considering real-life examples, we will examine the NCPEC rules, current trends in ethical behavior, social networking, and fraud.
 
Note: This course fulfills the State Board’s annual two-hour Ethics CPE requirement. The two-hour Ethics course is required for annual license renewal for North Carolina CPAs and does not qualify one to obtain an original or reciprocal certificate (the Accountancy Law course required for certification and reciprocity is an eight-hour program that is also offered by NCACPA, and it satisfies this requirement). If you have questions, please contact the NC State Board of CPA Examiners. The vendor has identified this course as satisfying the 80-hour requirement for Yellow Book. It is up to the individual to determine if this course meets the 24-hour Yellow Book requirement. If you have a question, please contact the GAO at (202) 512-9535
