    We will use this time to have audience led group discussions looking at what attendees have learnt from the day in order to:
    - Extract a list of conditions that are needed in order for automation to thrive.
    - Understand what the future role of finance is and how teams can start to become prepared for that
    We will pose some starter questions to the room and then come back together to feedback as a wider group.
