FINANCIAL DIRECTOR is pleased to reveal that Simon Laffin, chairman of Flybe, the low cost airline, has joined the line up at the CFO Agenda.
The former Safeway CFO and chair of the UK’s biggest regional carrier will discuss how finance directors can take a more proactive approach to managing governance and how to analyse what good corporate governance looks like.
Laffin joins an already impressive list of senior finance professionals and business leaders speaking at the 18 June event for finance directors, chief financial officers and their finance teams. View the full programme here.
The event, which covers the political and consequent economic changes that will follow in the wake of the 2015 General Election, will feature a keynote talk by Justin King, the former chief executive at Sainsbury’s.
Justin King served as CEO of J Sainsbury for a decade. At the time, one of the youngest CEOs in FTSE 100 history, Justin’s time in charge is seen as one of the great success stories of recent British business. In his speech, Justin will tackle the vagaries of leadership, including his list of ‘ten Cs’ for great leadership. He also considers his personal journey and the lessons it’s delivered, as well as ethical business.
The programme also includes a panel of eminent economists who will outline their financial forecasts and examine how political shifts might alter the economic landscape on both a national and international scale.
Attendees to the event include finance professionals from HSBC, P&O, Reed Elsevier, Guardian Media Group and Marathon Asset Management. Book your place now.
