CEO.digital and Workday introduce CEO.digital Café, a unique experience for CFOs

Join CEO.digital and Workday for an exclusive virtual networking experience, as we discuss how the finance function can steer companies back to growth with tech-led forecasting and prediction models.

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA

In partnership with Workday, we are hosting an exclusive CEO.digital Café networking experience on organisational agility this November – and you’re invited! We’re bringing together a selection of the continent’s CFOs and senior executives for a VIP networking and business discussion, all taking place digitally. We’ll send you a luxurious selection of Fortnum & Mason refreshments to enjoy as our speakers delve into the evolving role of the modern CFO and how they are utilising new technologies to bring organisational agility to their companies, including enhanced planning and forecasting models that will help power the return to growth.

Finance, along with most other departments, has had to embrace organisational agility so they are able to respond, renew and adapt quickly in the face of disruption. Organisational agility is vital, especially now that CFOs and finance leaders must perform critical tasks out of the office, including virtual closes and remote audits. Finance needs to be able to rapidly and continuously respond to the changing environment around it, and technology has a vital role to play in enabling the future agility that can make this happen.

To succeed in this rapidly changing world, CFOs are looking to embrace more frequent modelling and scenario planning tools to help their organisation determine the right path forward – annual planning cycles simply won’t cut it anymore. Throughout this networking event, we’ll look at how recent experiences have led to digital finance acceleration as finance responds to the changes impacting them.

Join us for a live discussion with Craig Crawford (Digital Transformation Strategist) and Tim Wakeford (VP Financials Product Strategy, Workday) this November. Every attendee will receive a Fortnum & Mason tea, coffee, and biscuits selection to enjoy throughout the networking event, and you’ll have the chance to connect with your peers, suggest discussion points, and spark meaningful business relationships.

Places are limited; RSVP now to prepare your organisation for what comes next!

It was one of the best industry events that I’ve been to. It was also the first where every single person I spoke to had in-depth experience and real industry insight. It was lovely to go to an event with such a calibre of attendees.
