For years, the Workiva Amplify conference has been your go-to for groundbreaking concepts, expert advice, and of course, a little fun. But now it’s bigger, better, and simpler. 

Yes, simpler

Because with all the deadlines, data, and new demands, we could all use a little more simplicity.

Amplify is the conference dedicated to helping you find ways to simplify complex work—whether it’s sorting out the nuance of complex regulations or streamlining complex processes. Join thousands from across the globe on Sept. 22nd-23rd as we share the insight of those who’ve dared to simplify. 

Award-winning actor. New York Times best-selling author. Philanthropist. Icon. And now, Amplify keynote speaker.

Catch our conversation with the one and only Matthew McConaughey, where he’ll discuss how you can create clarity in your life and work. We’ll talk about his personal journey, and the steps he took to reduce the noise around to drive meaningful change both personally and professionally—and how you can, too. 

Get the practical advice and actionable how-to’s you need to simplify your work with an agenda that spans across nine tracks, from audit, risk, and compliance to ESG. This long list of expert-led sessions includes:

  • Signify, the world leader in connected LED lighting, explaining how it filed its first ESEF filing early 
  • Bryan Foss, Non-Executive Director of The Risk Alliance, in conversation with Workiva about how a UK version of SOX will impact businesses 
  • NXP Semiconductors and Liv Watson, co-founder of XBRL, join Workiva to discuss how the CFO and their team will be impacted by ESG moving to the controllership and what organisations can do to minimise risk 
  • AngloAmerican will share how they manage their Annual Reporting process and how they've future-proofed it against further regulatory disruption

Elsewhere, there are sessions with the SEC’s chief accountant, America’s first Black female combat pilot, and the top name in agile audit, Rick Wright. 

Plus, you can earn up to 8 CPE in just a couple of days. Start a dialogue with the speakers as during the event. Learn from the people who’ve made simplicity a reality. 

Amplify 2021 doesn't start and end with the sessions. We've created the 'Amplify Expo'. It's a space where you can have real-life conversations and make valuable new connections—all in a virtual setting. 

Get questions answered by experts in 1:1 discussions. Network with other attendees. Gain new perspectives from your peers. 

Amplify is the global event that brings everyone together to make the world of work easier. Catch thought-provoking keynotes. Discover best practices and bold ideas. Preview new tools and technologies. Meet with Workiva users, partners, and staff—and then do it all again the next day.
