ALISTAIR DARLING AND SIR CLIVE WOODWARD have been confirmed as keynote speakers for Financial Director’s CFO Agenda event in June.
The top-level speakers are among the highlights of our 2016 Agenda, which has the theme ‘Culture. Strategy. Change.’
Darling served as chancellor of the Exchequer during the most turbulent and far-reaching economic crisis the world had seen. He will talk about his experiences as chancellor, and provide thoughts on the impact upon business of the UK’s EU Referendum – held just days before the Agenda.
Sir Clive is the World Cup-winning head coach who led England’s rugby players to glory in Australia in 2003. He will provide rare insight into people management and driving culture, while setting out your own path to success.
Other key topics include:
Driving organisational change; Implementing effective corporate culture; Setting strategic goals; Britain and EU membership referendum; Cyber security; The morality of tax planning; and Finance transformation
Darling and Sir Clive join a growing lineup for the Agenda, which already includes O2 UK CFO Mark Evans, Jolyon Maugham QC, the IoD’s Stephen Herring and Talita Ferreira, CFO of BMW Group UK.
