Future of the Finance Function

Changing role and mandate of finance
  • The finance function has a mandate to go beyond its core accounting role;
  • The function now has the capability to assess a broader range of information;
  • To become a more influential player within an organisation;
  • It’s time to step up and occupy the space that the finance function of the future must own.
Changing technology

Finance is facing unprecedented disruption. Responsible for changing the shape and role of both the function and its finance leaders, demystifying and embracing some of the more critical technologies is the path to success.

Don't simply jump on the technology bandwagon! Hear practical experiences and insights from industry speakers who will help you to assess exactly what technology you do and don't need, to move forward.

Changing shape of the finance function

Every CFO is an artist. Finding your own way to building the best finance function to support your business is how we can help. 

  • Embrace and adopt change
  • Capitalise on the opportunities open to you
  • Build the foundations to become a different kind of CFO leading a different kind of finance function
  • Increase the agility, speed and performance of the function
Changing skills and competencies

‘Finance people need a mindset that enables them to adapt through continuous learning.’

Learn how to:

  • Explore how technological automation is shifting the competency skills set required of a finance professional
  • Introduce the concept of a growth mindset
  • Demonstrate the increasing need to continually learn and relearn as new technologies replace timeworn skills and knowledge
How should finance prepare?

We know the process to change is not an easy one and we are working with you to help realise the future of finance mandate through bringing the best ideas and innovations to guide you on the journey.

Join us and:

  • Explore the basic activities that are the essential DNA of every finance function.  These are the building blocks, which without, the evolving mandate would not be possible.
  • Explain the broad finance function roles.  These will enable you to plot where your finance function is, on the journey to owning the space that the changing mandate has created.   
  • Finally, explore the transformation the finance function needs to take to meet the changing mandate.
What are the opportunities for finance?

‘Finance is playing a strategic role for an organisation in transition’. 

Enabled by new technologies, finance has the capability to assess a broader range of information, embrace a strategic mandate and become a far greater influencer within the organisation.

How the CFO will be the head coach in the business
