Digital Mindset Pack, especially Blockchain module was very useful for me as until taking this course I did not know much about what even blockchain is. Real examples of how it works, how it can be used, what benefits and opportunities it brings explained this topic in details. Next thing to explore after this course -  cryptocurrencies! Robotic Process Automation module made me think of tasks performer in my organization - especially in accounting and controlling department that are readily available for RPA and how much it would ease working, how much time could be devoted to value added activities instead of repetitive manual tasks that could be performer automatically thanks to RPA.

A good package of learning tools and a nice "freebie" this year.

Quite impressed with the papers on the changing role of finance, well worth a read.

A great package of resources covering many topics that are hitting the world of accountancy. I am very excited by how block chain will improve trade and compliance. The opportunities are also applicable for many other business areas so one I will be keeping up to date on.
