CFOs are ready to shift gears. Having spent much of the past decade ensuring compliance with corporate governance requirements and cost reduction initiatives, they are eager to strengthen their strategy, planning, reporting and analytical capabilities.

  • How finance functions can create more value for the business by better servicing their customers and understanding what drives shareholder value
  • The different-from-traditional skill sets that finance professionals must have to support higher value processes
  • Practical advice around talent: better recruitment, training, retention and partnering for talent
  • How a business-led approach to transformation, properly resourced, will prevent wasted time, money and effort
