Program Description

The future of finance is full of changing regulations, new technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain and new and emerging business models. The CFO must handle the “traditional” responsibilities of finance dealing with an ever-increasing amount of regulations, hurdling tax laws, maintaining internal controls, executing corporate governance, reporting information that is accurate, actionable and readily available. The modern CFO needs to keep up with all of these changes while simultaneously being a strategic business partner – essentially being responsible for counting the beans and growing them too! In this session learn how the modern-day CFO takes on the role of strategic business partner, while effectively accomplishing the traditional tasks of the finance function with emerging technologies like Blockchain.

Learning Objectives

·     What are the business benefits?
