Southeast Asia CFO Vision 2018

The CFO of the future

19 July 2018 | Hilton Kuala Lumpur

As technological innovation and digital advances become increasingly crucial in driving a connected global economy, the role of finance has deepened and CFOs are increasingly called upon to fill expanded leadership roles.

Running into its second year, the Southeast Asia CFO Vision brings together distinguished leaders and subject matter experts across ASEAN to help CFOs tackle salient issues, stay ahead in the face of growing challenges and demands, and embrace the digital evolution for business growth.

Themed 'The CFO of the future,' the conference is centred around key topics addressing the ever-changing economy and business environment, how finance is upended by digital disruption, as well as other pressing challenges faced by finance and how CFOs can prepare for it.
