A look at how adopting new technologies in finance enable agility in this new era of work
Demos
  • COVID-19 was an eye-opener for many CFOs. While it exposed fault lines in the office of finance’s current operating model, it also proved that bold change can happen quickly and effectively. Business as usual no longer exists, and the leading organisations embraced technology and data to reinvent core processes and adopt new ways of working. But this has not come without its challenges, as finance has to provide rapid insight while maintaining financial control. Join this session to hear from Rob Scott, CFO at Keygroup, discuss the ways finance is using this opportunity to leverage greater influence – and remerge as a more agile and digitally-enabled function.
