AAFCPAs Partner Janice O’Reilly, CPA, CGMA and Manager Dawn Pantano, CPA, CITP will present a professional development session on the Futuristic CFO at FEI-Boston’s April 26th Professional Development Event.
The role of the CFO is evolving, and the unique skills required of CFOs will continue to position them as a valuable, strategic resource to executive leadership and one that may be leveraged across departmental lines. CEOs will continue to rely on their CFO to help them improve profitability, manage the business, complement their skills, and offer leadership. CFOs will continue to be challenged by resource and bandwidth limitations. They must commit to a culture of ongoing process improvement in order to be effective, efficient, and to stay nimble in this evolving landscape. They need to overcome resource challenges in order to execute on priorities. Additionally, they must continue to invest in the next generation of great leaders and leverage technology.
“It is not the strongest, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptive to change.” – Charles Darwin
Attendees will network with fellow senior financial executives, and gain insight into best practices for the futuristic CFO, including:
- Ensuring you have the right number of team members and the right variety of skill sets to guarantee top performance.
- Ensuring your business processes are optimized for efficiency, effectiveness, and internal control—which are often competing priorities.
- Ensuring you have the right IT systems in place, and that you are quantifying and optimizing ROI on technology investments.
