Forging the Future of Finance.
CFOConnect is about forging the future of Finance. While much is written about “what” is changing in the role of the CFO as well as the Finance and Accounting profession, we focus on “how” to prepare for and embrace these changes. Simply put, we believe that CFO’s must lead the charge in establishing and maintaining resilient data management disciplines in their organizations – this is no longer a function of IT, but a strategic lever to survive and prosper.
Our goal is to inform, provoke thought, and encourage collaboration on this important topic. This is the road less traveled – but together with your valued feedback, it can become the mainstream ‘norm’ of the future.
