Why you cannot Miss this Event:
The role of the CFO and Head of Finance has, over time, transitioned from a number crunching to a strategic role that demands an all inclusive portfolio of skills. CFOs and Financial Directors have now to not only managed the financial perspective of the business, but also the more strategic, integrative role, and donning these two hats is no easy task. Financial heads today find themselves taking on the implementation of corporate governance values and managing risk, at the same time as balancing the cash flow. Budgeting, forecasting now goes hand in hand with Board Management, and this together with investor relations means that a Heads of Finance has their hands very full.
In our current financial climate, extra challenges are being added on to the financial heads role. With the rising inflation, unstable currency, and investment dropping, organisations are struggling to find a balance. Cost cutting strategies are on the tip of every manager’s tongue and while all other costs are rising around them, it is the CFO’s role to implement a reduction of costs in the organisation. Maintaining a sustainable and successful relationship with the CEO is also one of the CFO’s greatest roles as this relationship will determine the success of the organisation.
Join us for a two day first of its kind event. A gathering of financial minds to highlight the challenges face in this uncertain economic climate; to discuss how to manage the role strategically and share ideas in taking your organisation to financial success. Boasting of panel of only the leaders in their fields, this event promises to assist you in transforming your role into an effective and efficient Chief Financial Officer.
