For the 2016 edition, we’ll be taking on the theme of “Culture. Strategy. Change”, where we’ll be bringing CFOs and finance directors up to speed on the emerging finance trajectory for the next 12 months, including:
- New industry opportunities and risks
- Guidance on implementing new business strategies at a high level and in an exclusive environment
- What the Brexit referendum means for you and your business
- The CFO’s pivotal role in corporate and management culture
- Mitigating tax versus reputation – Do companies have a duty to avoid tax?
Topics range from maximising the use of data, to reconfiguring how we think about risk management. The programme will also focus on how a company can maintain fluid but robust governance processes, as well as exploring the importance of the sustainability promise.
