ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Annual Executive Seminar is a premier conference hosted by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) with the goal of congregating senior corporate and public sector leaders for candid conversations on emerging trends and challenges faced by their organizations. Now on its 24th edition, the Seminar boasts of having successfully benchmarked Kenya against select top performing cities around the world and having engaged prominent speakers to facilitate the seminars. This strategy has resulted in the transformation of delegates’ perspectives and a steering towards embracing innovative and effective solutions to common challenges facing the accountancy profession in Africa.
This Year’s Focus – In Pursuit of Holistic Growth and Stability
In this era of bleeding edge technologies, globalization and new generation employees; executives are constantly contending to learn and invent business models that will enable organizations stay afloat and thrive. The continuously emerging disruptions across industries have seen many organizations lose their market share and even collapse due to inability to adapt. For instance, a more aggressive tax regime will necessitate proper tax planning while increasing cost of operations demands the institution of austerity measures. Transitions in government regimes have also occasioned multiple changes in the operations of public sector entities since they have to mesh with new regime priorities.
This year, the Executive Seminar promises to be another insightful chapter structured to address challenges concerning current vital subjects affecting economies, technology and governance, among others.
The topics selected for discussion include:
- Business Analytics in Executive Decision Making
- Enterprise Risk Management – Incorporating Risk Considerations in Strategy

- Crafting Tax Policies in the Modern Self-Assessment Tax Regime
- An Executive Approach to Social and Interactive Media- Making an Impact
