The CFO Roundtable

An exclusive discussion for CFOs and financial leaders in Singapore

Evolving Talent in the Finance Fucntion


In the not-too-distant future, CFOs will be overseeing vastly different finance departments—both in terms of who will be doing the work and how that work will get done.

As innovations increase, the need to manage these new and changing business processes predominantly increase as well. Technologies ranging from artificial intelligence (AI) to robotic process automation (RPA), and analytics tools will surely streamline finance processes, but they will heighten, not abolish the need for skilled employees. While automation is likely to relieve some workers of repetitive tasks, it will also transform many existing positions, requiring additional strategic and analytical skills. 

It is then critical for CFOs to define and address the need for talent that will meet the demands of innovation and transformation. Thus, the right individuals who possess the technical and soft skills are becoming essential to support the continuous evolution of technology. We will be bringing together prominent CFOs from the country’s largest local companies to discuss these challenges and changes.

We will be discussing: 

  • How do you ensure that your team’s expertise matches their roles and responsibilities in the company?
  • How are you addressing the need to retrain and retain the evolving skills from recent innovations?
  • What is your company doing to ensure finding and equipping the right skills amongst your team?
