WHY ATTEND THIS PROGRAM?

For the finance leader in 2021, we all battle the ‘conflicting’ priorities building a team that drives strategic value to the business, balanced against the need to navigate governance and compliance, uphold performance accountabilities and ultimately, management of trustworthy financial data.
While there are a range of solutions to all of the above, an approach that makes sense of this is required in order to avoid being ‘stuck in the weeds’ and ensure we realise our potential as a strategic finance leader. This program introduces participants to a strategic leadership or ‘co-pilot’ framework that is underpinned by four key pillars:
1. Strategy Development and Execution
2. Leadership and Culture in Finance
3. Automation, Robotics and Process Excellence
4. Modelling & Analytics
We focus on building the strategic leadership ‘muscles’ that bring it all together.

Getting the most out of this program - A participant's view


Be willing to learn and become pioneers within your organisation for change and innovation. And then be infectious with your willingness to learn through the program so that your peers, and other team members see that, so they’re motivated to jump on the ‘learning train’. Above all, value & prioritise growth as an organisation, team and individual.
