Corporate Financial Reporting Insights Virtual Conference 2020 On Demand

Earn up to 21.5 CPE Credits

Leading through Crisis to Opportunity

Corporate finance has never experienced a year like 2020. COVID-19 and the consequent lockdowns have resulted in unprecedented economic declines across the entire globe, sending high-flying corporate profits--and the balance sheets of financial executives--into a freefall practically overnight.

Operating in this “new normal” is something preparers need to not only manage but embrace. And learning how to respond to these daily changes is necessary to stay ahead of the curve. To do so, corporate finance executives need to understand the immediate effects of the pandemic and be prepared for the looming long-term consequences.

At FEI’s 39th Annual Corporate Financial Reporting Insights (CFRI) Virtual Conference, discover the impact of these disruptive forces on your company and learn what corporate financial leaders have done, and can do, to effectively respond to these challenges.

Now available on demand, learn from industry-wide corporate chief accounting officers and controllers, standards-setters, regulators, and accounting firms as they share insights, uncover opportunities, and provide actionable strategies to support the controllership during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earn up to 21.5 CPE credits at sessions featuring top regulators from the U.S. SEC, FASB and finance leaders from companies such as Microsoft, PayPal, Google and more as they share their insights and best practices to help corporate finance leaders leverage their technical expertise to add value to their companies.

CPE requirements for each session can be completed by December 31!
