The CFO Exchange: understanding the future of the finance leader

8th December 2020 | 10:00am - 11:30am GMT | 1 hour and 30 minutes

This year has seen the business landscape disrupted like never before, with short-term tactical challenges and cost pressures top of mind for CFOs everywhere. Without doubt, it’s been a challenging 12 months.

But with positive developments in the macro-economic environment now creeping into the news cycle and changing the tone of conversations about the immediate future, it is now time to look ahead to what your business will look like over the next 12 months and beyond. And the CFO’s role in this process is critical.

Finance professionals are expertly placed to help the business make informed decisions about how to mitigate risk and how to transform. But their ability to do so rests on having the right tools and structures in place to lead the wider organisational transformation that will be required to ensure long-term business success.

Change is coming to us all: so how do you ensure that change works for your business, rather than against it? How do you develop a sustainable business model going forward? What are the tools that will help you to do so? And how do you move from theory into practice?

Join the CFO Exchange to find out. Nuria Mas, Professor and Head of Economics at IESE Business School will lead this virtual meeting with her session ‘The Global Economy after The Great Lockdown’ and examine some of the potential implications for business with Nick Jackson, President of CIMA and Head of Digital Transformation for Finance at Oracle, before breakout groups for further intimate discussions.

Together, we hope to begin finance-led conversations that no-one else is currently having and to answer questions that no-one else is yet asking. This is not simply about staying ahead of the curve; it’s making sure finance has the knowledge and insight to lead the way.
