Technological developments are radically changing the business of accountants. The World Economic Forum found that accountants run the highest risk of becoming redundant due to automation. Verkruijsse stated in his farewell speech that the accountant must keep up with the times, or else the end of the story will be lost. One question is to what extent the professional must and can go along with these developments. A number of conclusions can be drawn from this exploratory study: (1) we have come across a positive attitude of the financial professional with regard to the state of affairs of digitalization and Blockchain, (2) attention for soft skills was, is and remains a point of attention for both organizations and education and (3) the working environment is slowing down the evolution towards digitalization and Blockchain.
