Past event: Future of Finance and CFO Summit

What is Future of Finance

The finance function is facing what is possibly the biggest era of transformation in its history. Process automation, the corporate digitisation agenda and an ongoing need to protect assets and manage costs, are putting significant pressure on finance professionals. CFOs and finance leaders need to consider how they should be planning for the future of their function.

The question is, how do finance adapt to deliver on these rising expectations?

To survive and thrive through these times of change, the finance function must evolve to a strategic, analytical, data-driven powerhouse that embraces digitisation and drives performance, thereby adding value throughout the business.

The Future of Finance and CFO Summit 2020 will not only ensure you meet like-minded finance professionals, but will enable you to come together to address the role revolution for finance and create a vision for the future.
