About CFO Executive Leadership Summit

Leading Change & Driving Innovation...........A Leading Event For CFO's And Senior-Level Finance Executives

The role of the CFO has evolved significantly, as CFO's are expected to make critical decisions on business performance and transformative projects and strategic judgements on all aspects of the business. The unstable and fast changing economic environment might make the role of CFO more challenging. This summit will provide a platform for CFOs to discuss about how to be well prepared for the challenges.

Designed with the CFO and senior finance executive in mind, the CFO Executive Leadership Summit is the key opportunity for finance leaders across all industry sectors to examine issues and share insights and best practice.

The Conference enables CFOs to learn and share perspectives from leading experts like themselves on the best practices for tackling today's opportunities and challenges, to engage in discussions with presenters and CFO peers, and to think about how to outpace disruption. The conference will address key topics on the minds of CFOs.
