An exclusive dinner discussion for CFOs and Financial Leaders of prominent firms based in Amsterdam

The Modern CFO: Pioneering Innovation Across the Organization


As the role of the CFO has broadened beyond the traditional core responsibilities of financial reporting, audit and compliance, financial planning and treasury, today’s CFOs increasingly find themselves with a prime seat at the table when it comes to long-term strategic planning and other business unit’s strategic decision making. The CFO’s sphere of influence grows even larger as organizations go digital, and today’s “digital CFOs” are able to leverage complete, real-time access to connected financial and risk data to provide data-driven insights to improve the accuracy, quality and timeliness of key decisions. Clearly, things are changing as CFOs have become first-line decision makers ensuring that their organizations have agile business processes and systems that maximize resources and deliver real results. We will be discussing:

  • What opportunities do CFOs have to accelerate their companies’ growth and enhance performance across the organization?
  • What constitutes effective collaboration between finance and other functions?
  • Which new and emerging technologies are playing a part in enabling this paradigm shift, so the CFO and his team can focus on more strategic objectives and value-add to the business?
