Finance Transformation: Driving business impact through your finance operating model

Executive Briefing

21st May, 2014
17:00 – 21:30
Brussels, Belgium

Driven by business volatility and the need for agility, the role of finance is evolving fast. Talent imbalances, technology innovation, and process advances have all reshaped what is possible. The magnitude of change can require new, often radical re-thinking of how the finance function works. The opportunity to drive tangible business impact is the prize.

The operating model of support functions has continued to evolve at a faster pace in recent years and now large enterprises routinely run their operations and deliver services through a blend of shared operations and outsourcing, often as part of a Global Business Services (GBS) vision. A combination of targeted HR and organizational design practices, advanced metrics, better use of sophisticated analytics and focused, process-driven technology, enable an unprecedented, robust, and yet flexible execution of many processes.

Successful operating models drive business impact. They provide access to new growth opportunities, create resilience to hostile market or regulatory conditions, and facilitate product and business model innovation throughout the enterprise. They create the foundation that enables innovation to accelerate faster in an ever more volatile marketplace.

This exclusive peer-to-peer roundtable meeting keynoted by Peter Aalbers, Vice President Shared Services at KPN, and Koen De Rijcke, VP at Genpact Europe, brings together 15 - 20 finance leaders to share and gain insights on how corporations can build unprecedented finance operations to reach new operating heights aligned to overall business goals. Attendees have the opportunity to share, discuss and debate amongst peers and experts and network over a champagne reception and an exquisite dinner.
