Tax hotspots, the challenges facing a new Chancellor, twitter and how to accelerate out of a recession are all key topics to be discussed by some of the industry’s leading figures at the 8th Annual Conference of Thomson Reuters owned, Digita.

The award-winning software developer has now announced its impressive list of guest speakers.

These include:

Francesca Lagerberg, Head of Tax at Grant Thornton UK LLP will speak on

"Tax Hotspots and what would you do in the first 100 days of becoming Chancellor?"

David Kilshaw, Head of KPMG’s Private Client Group, will provide a Capital Tax Update:

"What’s Hot and What’s Not."

Mark Lee, arguably one of the most active UK accountants involved in online networking and 'social' media, will be posing the question,

"Should accountants ignore or explore Twitter and other 'social' media?"

Motivational speaker and former HM Inspector of Taxes Bill Docherty MBE will be advising delegates about

"Growing your accounting practice and accelerating out of the recession."

Conference organiser Karen Gardner commented:

"The Annual Digita Conference has developed a reputation for delivering speakers of the highest quality. These are industry thought leaders who will provide a stimulating and challenging backdrop to the many other events taking place over the two days.

"There is no other industry opportunity during the year to hear from such a distinguished platform of top speakers.

"These include product briefing sessions and one to one surgeries, a range of CPE-accredited educational opportunities; insights on best practices; and information on the latest tools and trends."
