There’s still time to join today’s free Finance Reimagined virtual CFO summit. Connect with industry icons and peers. Expand your network and get insights from savvy CFOs as they share their perspectives on the impact of COVID-19, how their organizations pivoted in response, and how they plan to transform for the future.
As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told the New York Times, reimagination leverages “innovations born of necessity like remote control of manufacturing processes, AI bots helping diagnose patients, and more effective distance-learning technologies.”
Modern finance leaders are not only responding and recovering from the global health crisis, but they are also implementing Satya’s advice by reimagining the future of business by accelerating automation and digital transformation. In today’s virtual summit, CFOs share their proven insights and strategies for their own enterprise’s reimagination and continued transformation.
Key themes we explore in this summit include how to:
- Sustain core financial processes
- Provide engaging analytics to support quick decisions
- Empower productive remote work while maintaining employee engagement
- Enable a safe return to the office process while creating more permanent remote roles and balancing a hybrid workforce
