Southeast Asia CFO Vision 2018
The CFO of the future
19 July 2018 | Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Extraordinary times demand exceptional leaders. 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. Amidst the changes and disruptions, companies have to stay competitive and CFOs are key to the success of their organisations.
Now in its second year, the Southeast Asia CFO Vision conference is designed to help CFOs tackle these salient issues. Themed ‘The CFO of the future,’ this year’s conference is centred around key topics addressing the ever-changing economy and business environment, how finance is upended by digital disruption, and how CFOs can stay ahead in the face of growing demands and embrace the digital evolution for business growth.
Some of the region’s leading CEOs, CFOs and subject matter experts came together to discuss on the rapid pace and increasing complexity of business, as well as the skills CFOs need to help conquer them.
The agenda offered a one day program filled with interactive presentations and discussions on timely topics and create opportunities for peer-to-peer conversations on challenging issues, to help them explore practical approaches to addressing them.
