A good decision is based on knowledge, not on numbers.
Plato’s insight still holds true today, but in the information age knowledge can be a slippery character. The rate at which information is generated continues to soar; the so called digital universe doubles in size every two years.
An investigation by EMC and IDC forecast that by 2020 there will be 44 trillion gigabytes of digital information on the planet. That’s a big haystack for anyone seeking genuine knowledge.
The same haystack effect took hold of Australia’s tax laws. In the late 1970s tax legislation stretched to 1,000 pages for the first time. It peaked at 9,000 pages. Recognising the need for clarity Wolters Kluwer created the Australian Master Tax Guide to help practitioners keep abreast of the changes and stay up to date.
Today Wolters Kluwer is a global leader in taxation, accounting, legal, human resources, information and business technology services.
Recognising that executives and managers need to navigate the white noise of all sorts of information besides tax legislation in order to reveal genuine nuggets of knowledge and value, Wolters Kluwer has announced its first Knowledge Week. A national series of seminars, webinars and workshops, Knowledge Week has been designed to go behind the numbers to deliver genuine knowledge and value for attendees.
According to Krista Moore, Wolters Kluwer’s Australian Marketing Director it’s intended to create an “expert insight engine”. She says; “Wolters Kluwer has a long history as the creator of the Australian Master Tax Guide, but has evolved into much more than that, delivering market leading technology software and high quality, curated content from thought leaders across a range of key industries. Knowledge Week crystallises that and provides a concentrated deep dive into the key issues that professionals need to be aware of over the coming 12 months.”
Knowledge Week, which runs from October 24 to 28 and now extends beyond the week due to overwhelming interest, features keynotes, panel discussions, webinars and interactive learning workshops across Australia covering taxation, accounting, legal, employment, technology and leadership.
Most events are complimentary and the full agenda and registration details can be accessed online at http://www.wolterskluwer.cch.com.au/knowledgeweek.html.
