Finance Adding Proactive Value to the Business

Welcome to the leading event focused entirely on the transformation of the modern day finance organization. 

We are pleased to bring you an exclusive agenda featuring the latest trends and leading practices from global companies. This event is designed to enable senior-level finance practitioners to improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of their organization by redefining the target operating model and executing towards it, leveraging organizational design, decision support, process standardization, and enabling tools and technology. 

Our agenda goes well beyond the why and wow factors, by  taking a "how to" approach which addresses the challenges and opportunities of executing transformation and adding strategic value to the business, keeping change management top of mind all along the way.

This conference brings together more than 150 practitioners in finance and accounting, financial planning and analysis, business unit finance and controllership, to network and share best practices and lessons learned. 

Bring your team and start to envision linkage between ideas, concepts, implementation and impact. Learn how to better communicate cause and its effect.

  • How to determine whether your company's culture is hindering or helping transformation
