The role of finance leaders is currently undergoing a profound transition. Most CFOs of leading companies seek finance leaders who can assist them with the business, compliment their skills and offer leadership, on top of their financial expertise. Finance leaders must be able to communicate well beyond those top levels and engage with people throughout the finance team and across the organisation. To help create and communicate such change, finance leaders need both an excellent understanding of all their organisations’ operations and a familiarity with emerging trends and technologies across the business. But the real question is, do they have time for all of these additional evolutions their job is undergoing, on top of crunching numbers daily?

Achieving the right degree of independence and collaboration is a tough balancing act and that is why this highly exclusive 3 day conference “CFO Africa 2020” aims to assist you with optimising cost, forging stronger internal collaboration, minimising investment risk and combating financial crimes to guide your business towards maximum profit.
