The Strategic CFO Forum will offer you pragmatic, peer-tested tactics and strategies to help you and your finance team optimize your contributions, drive value through your organization and become the strategic, indispensable business partner your CEO needs to steer the enterprise.
Take one day to invest in yourself, collaborate with your peers, and learn from world-class thought leaders to meet the rising expectations being placed on your finance team. Developing operational excellence starts with you. Now is the time to rise to the challenge—your C-Suite peers are counting on you.
Gone are the days of “business as usual” and traditional CFO responsibilities. We’ll equip you with the critical assets of a strategic CFO to elevate your contributions.
How do you make data more than “data” to drive your business objectives? We’ll help you maximize the value of your enterprise’s data and leverage metrics to make smarter decisions on company strategy and financial planning.
Inflation, supply chain disruption, volatile financial markets, talent shortages — there’s no lack of tough challenges testing your strategy. Ask the hard questions and see possibilities where others see challenges to give your company a true edge over the competition.
Leverage working sessions to gain tangible solutions from other CFOs who have tackled similar challenges growing their businesses, scaling their finance departments, and implementing operational efficiencies.
