The Evolution of Finance Teams - What skills do future CFOs need to have?

The roles and responsibilities of a CFO already extend far beyond the traditional compliance, financial reporting and governance roles. As well as managing finances, today’s CFOs are increasingly expected to provide guidance and advice to the CEO and board on a range of issues, including cyber security, customer service, logistics and corporate branding.

Into the future, CFOs and their finance teams will increasingly move out of the back office into the front line, where their expertise and experience will be vital for driving economic growth and in enabling business to remain resilient and competitive.

Our panel will share their experience and insights as they discuss the impact, the challenges and the changing skills needed in the future.
