Event Themes

CFO’s role in driving long-term economic success

Leading Volatility, ESG, Financial Strategy and Talent

The Future of Financial Functions: Digital, Autonomous, Structures

Abstract Futuristic Background

The DNA of the modern CFO

Slowing growth, persistent inflation, high energy prices and global supply constraints continue to add pressure and drive volatility for CFOs and finance executives.

How do you lead when the world is in permanent crisis mode? 

 

Gain strategic guidance on the matters that shape finance just now, company performance, autonomous transformation and personal effectiveness. Going from one disruption to another, the role of the Finance Leader is evolving dramatically and on a fast-track forward.

 

The rising needs of stakeholders and macro pressures also 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.

 

Over 1000+ Nordic colleagues we’ll gather to discuss how the current outlooks are 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.
