November 01, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsNovember 1, 2016 - Donny Shimamoto will be presenting two courses at the 2016 AICPA Controllers Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. His first session, Project Management for Accountants, will teach attendees how to create a project charter to increase the success rates for projects and to help organizations increase the value they obtain from projects. The second course, Business Ethics for Accountants, evaluates through an interactive format how organizations have integrated ethics into their business practices. It will highlight the important role that accountants play in helping their organizations to improve performance while maintaining a high standard of conduct that keeps them out of the news for bad behavior.
"The CFO's and Controller's contributions are essential to an organization's success. Their reach extends across strategic planning, organizational leadership, and performance management but not all of them understand their impact. These courses will enable them to contribute to the success of their organizations while maintaining the high ethical standards and objectivity of the accounting profession." Shimamoto continued, "This event addresses the responsibilities shared by CFOs and controllers, across industries nationwide, for a hand-on learning experience that can be immediately applied when they go back to their organizations."
Donny is the immediate past chairman of the AICPA's Information Management & Technology Assurance Executive Committee, and former member of its Governing Council and Assurance Services Executive Committee, and an honoree of multiple industry awards. He has worked on several international collaborations between the AICPA and CIMA related to business intelligence and is also a frequent speaker on how management accountants can help add-value to their organizations.
