CFOs Leading Transformation - Special East Bay Event

Please join us for FEI San Francisco Bay Area’s inaugural East Bay event (the first of upcoming quarterly events in Walnut Creek, Tri-Valley, and Oakland).  We are excited to be partnering with Workday, and want to get the event date on your summer calendar:

 “CFOs Leading Transformation”

 The role of the CFO has been evolving and has never been as critical as it is now. The business world, disrupted by digital and globalization, is changing fast and the stakes are high – the power of decisions can impact a company irreparably and the factors for foresight in decision making are vast - CFOs are in this unique position, beyond the CEO, to step up to chief decision support officers to help steer the company forward and lead transformation.

CFOs are being called to action to create value, develop strategy and: 

Manage disruption and lead change 

Become a creative visionary who is grounded firmly in the facts while being able to partner with the CEO on supporting the vision 

Understand the whole business and the key outcome metrics (not just financial) – Customer Experience, Talent, Brand, Competitive Intelligence, Efficiency of Business Processes (not just in Finance) 

Become an advisor, operator and enabler 

Participate in this thought provoking session for a dialog on:
  • Traditional Role.  A traditional CFO, and how is it different from the modern day CFO? 
  • Evolution.  Why has the CFO’s role changed over time? 
  • Key Skills: What are the three key skills every modern-day CFO should possess, and why? 
  • Challenges.  What particular challenges do you face as a finance leader? 
  • Culture. Views on company culture? How do you bring the accounting & finance team together? 
  • Lessons. What are the most important learnings about being a finance leader? 
  • Tips. Tips for the next generation of CFO’s aspiring finance leaders.

The event’s presenter is Sas Mukherjee, CFO and Chief Strategy Officer at York Risk Services Group, who has spoken and written extensively about the evolving role of the CFO, including as the opening keynote speaker at Argyle’s 2018 Financial Leadership Forums, CFO Rising Summit conferences, and other events around the country.  Sas will be joined by Dominic Kellermann, Director of Financial Product Strategy at Workday.
