Dispatches From FEI 2019 Conference

Financial Executives International is hosting its annual Corporate Financial Reporting Insights conference in New York this week, a who’s who of financial reporting regulators, executives, and other thought leaders. Radical Compliance couldn’t attend FEI in person this year, so as usual, we’ve collected a bundle of dispatches from social media to call out interesting points made and issues raised.

This gels with what I’ve seen elsewhere about robotic process automation.


You can find many more tweets, pithy and useful or otherwise, with the hashtag #FEICFRI2019. Thank you to FEI for hosting the event, and Radical Compliance promises to follow all the issues raised here throughout 2020 and beyond.
