The chief financial officer is more than a company’s top-ranking money person; he or she is responsible for a cross-section of functions that touch on every aspect of business, from staffing and succession planning to IT. We discuss acquiring and retaining financial talent, and financial issues surrounding tax and budgeting. We also cover:
- Financial reporting and the balanced score card
- Risk and crisis management
- Compliance and Sarbanes-Oxley
As CFOs, we have a far more complex role than we could have imagined 10 years ago. Our meetings give us a chance to share solutions in this challenging new world. Members can receive CPE credits for participation.
The power of peer learning
Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
