Why You Should Attend

Kingdom CFO: Visionary Leader of the New Era [Marcus Evans Live+ is Available]

Businesses around the world are facing the black swan risk and financial leaders are pressed to take further steps in building financial resilience for business sustainability. In order to maintain nationwide financial stability, the Kingdom has been applying measures and beneficial steps to strengthen the economy. Successful CFOs understand where and how to employ strategies that take advantage of these trends, and how to structure finance to make the most of tight budgets. Progressive leaders break down organisational structures that limit the advantages of a digital finance function, pay close attention to reduce duplication of effort and aim to provide coordinated support to the business.

But while this vast change brings opportunities, it also brings a great deal of uncertainty. The Kingdom CFO conference has been curated to equip you with the skills to gain insight on how best to manage uncertainty on your financial transformation journey and what CFOs within the region need to do to truly become the visionaries of their business in the next decade. This event will help you capitalise on growth opportunities while reinforcing confidence to become a strategic, tech-savvy leader within your organisation.

This flagship event extracts more value from accounting and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems while adopting digital technologies to improve finance processes. Kingdom CFO will not only ensure you meet like-minded finance professionals, but will enable you to come together to address the role revolution for finance and create a vision for the future CFO.
