The Evolving Role of the CFO: High Performance Finance through Business Partnering

CFO Roundtable Meeting

21st November, 2013
17:00 – 21:30

The expectations and roles of the CFO are changing. In today’s increasingly challenging business world, CFOs need to build finance functions that drive companies forward at all levels in order to become high performance businesses.

High performance finance excels at activities that contribute the most value to companies through impactful business decision support, advanced and enhanced reporting and analysis, and agile transactional finance providing quality and service. In order for companies to become high performance organisations, finance must transform and become a trusted strategic business partner across the organization acting as a catalyst to value creation.

This exclusive CFO Roundtable Meeting, keynoted by Sonja Rottiers, CFO at Axa Belgium, and Herman Schurmans, VP Finance Benelux at Coca-Cola Enterprises, brings together 15 - 20 CFOs to discuss and gain insights on the evolving role of the CFO in creating business value through strategic business partnering.

The meeting will focus on business partnering as a cross-functional role highlighting:

  • Scenario planning
  • Predictive analysis
  • Monitoring performance and efficiency from both a financial and non-financial perspective
  • Managing cost efficiency rather than process efficiency
  • Behavior and mindset

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