CFO'S LARGEST GATHERING OF THE YEAR
Finance transformation and redesigning the finance function is a top priority in companies right now.
Many CFOs see the incorporation of digital technology as a key route to improving profitability in volatile times.
The rising needs of stakeholders and macro pressures act as a catalyst for CFOs to “digitally elevate” and deliver more real-time, predictive, errorless, always-on support answers to drive profitable and sustainable decisions.
CFOs are also dealing with simultaneous challenges they haven’t faced before, such as heightened geopolitical and regulatory tensions, supply chain shocks, higher inflation, and labor problems.
Communication with the board is a top priority for CFOs and more critical than ever.
By joining the event you will discover the latest strategies and technologies being implemented by leading companies to transform the role of finance into a business-partner capable of delivering the crucial support and insights necessary for long-term economic success.
Over 1000+ Nordic colleagues will gather and discuss how the ongoing situation is changing your role and the Finance Departments and we'll discuss the concrete steps to protect your business and how to be prepared for the worst-case scenario in the best way possible.
Join 1000 peers - Acquire New Insights, Trends, and Generate Business Growth.
