Global Business Services as a Driver for the Target Operating Model

CFO Roundtable Meeting

27th November, 2013
17:00 – 21:30

CFOs today are being challenged to build a borderless finance organization capable of meeting increasingly global and cross-functional business requirements. Budget constraints, compliance requirements, shifting market expectations, delivery issues, talent challenges - all are increasing demands on finance’s resources, skills and budget. Addressing this more complex business environment through a single dimension such as increasing headcount, external leverage, or technology investments may bring temporary relief, but the most sustained results are coming from integrated programs that address the multiple dimensions of finance operations.

Global Business Services (GBS) are enabling organizations to create Targeted Operating Models (TOMs) to support their strategic objectives. This alignment enhances flexibility, reduces costs and complexity while providing the CFO access to real time data to create business value, prevent leakage, release working capital and enable seamless Business Transformation.

This exclusive peer-to-peer roundtable meeting keynoted by Detlef Thielgen, CFO of UCB, brings together 15 - 20 CFOs to share and gain insights on how corporations can leverage GBS and TOM for business impact highlighting:

  • Finance strategy at UCB
  • Global Business Services as a tool for the CFO
  • Keys to optimizing a finance operating model

The discussion will be followed by cocktails and an exquisite meal to carry on the debate and to network.
