The CFO Summit team invites chief financial officers and finance executives to participate in the upcoming event as a speaker, panelist or moderator. Take advantage of this opportunity to share best practices, outline project successes, discuss current trends and learn about technology solutions during roundtables, think tanks, and panel discussions.
Topics of Discussion are Set to Include:
- Building the Corporate Culture - Being the foundation for corporate success, executives have long acknowledged the importance and value of corporate culture and its relation to a company's risk management.
- Risk Clarity - Discuss how to create a plan for taking your existing situation and turning it into an improved one; for identifying your risk exposures; and creating strategic solutions to reduce or eliminate those risks.
- Talent Management and Retention - Talent management is an increasingly crucial skill and generally a great deal more complex a problem than can be solved with traditional business methods. Every organization must also be able to identify key members of their staff and retain the talent it already has. This session will discuss a system for developing and retaining talent, and a process for developing tomorrow's leaders today.
- Reaching for Operational Excellence - Operational excellence is a philosophy of leadership, teamwork and problem solving, resulting in continuous improvement throughout the organization by focusing on the needs of the customer, empowering employees, and optimizing existing activities in the process. It is a business strategy in which an organization provides products and/or services that has the best price and the most convenience for their customers.
- Better Decision Making in a Diverse and Competitive Marketplace (executive panel) - Trying to juggle the needs and demands of internal clients and stakeholders is an ongoing challenge for CFOs, requiring not only skill and agility, but time and resources that many organizations cannot afford.
- The Economics of Cloud Computing (executive panel) - The potential to lower costs are making CFOs enthusiastic about cloud computing. The implementation will bring CFOs and CIOs closer together and it will require both parties to penetrate the hype surrounding the cloud.
