The Future of Forecasting 2021

The Future of Forecasting | May 25 2021 | Online

One of the most extraordinary periods in our lives is in full swing and has a lot of impact on personal and business levels. Looking ahead and predicting the future has become very uncertain but all the more necessary. Anticipation, improvisation, and working out scenarios are more important than ever. Data was already important but now appears to be crucial for making meaningful decisions.

During this year’s Future of Forecasting, the focus will be on data-driven predictive planning. The frequency and accuracy of plans will increase to anticipate challenges effectively and improve competitiveness significantly. Underlying topics are fact-based planning; Integrated Business Planning (IBP); application of Machine Learning; Analytics in forecasting and Predictive planning.

Contrary to what you are used to from Finext and due to the pandemic, this will be an online event. Nevertheless, we will do everything we can to create an event full of interactions and authentic experiences.


Jeroen Otter

Be inspired by Jeroen Otter, national coach of the successful Dutch short track team. He will take you into the world of high performance sports and the role that data plays in making better programs and predicting the potential of your own team and the competitors.

Also, Prof. Frank Hartmann, Professor of Accounting at the Radboud University will share with us the changing role of Finance towards predictive forecasting. He will link his experience to applicability in business.

Next to the central sessions, we also facilitate a number of sub-sessions, where you can choose from substantive practical stories from different organizations or sessions in which the applicability of the subject in technology will be shown. Finally, you can network online and catch up with colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere.
