In the global marketplace, the roles of senior financial executives are evolving beyond traditional financial management. CFOs are rising fast in the corporate power structure, poised to stand as equals with their chief executive counterparts. Financial rigor and strategic insight are needed as the CFO is called upon to identify and assess profitable business ventures, lead mergers and acquisitions, establish alliances and shape future growth strategies.
As companies in Australia and New Zealand seek to expand their networks and their influence into the regional and overseas markets, their CFOs are challenged to strengthen corporate governance practices and develop the leadership skills required to contribute to growth strategies and value creation in their organisations.
The CFO Summit 2008 will welcome Australia and New Zealand’s top financial executives across all major industry sectors. Over three days and two nights, this networking event offers the perfect setting for sponsors to meet and interact with the most respected finance leaders in these countries. In addition, sponsors are entitled to attend the strategic summit sessions lead by the most high-ranking CFOs and leading finance strategists in Australia and New Zealand. Within the luxurious settings of the Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove Hotel, the CFO Summit 2008 presents a unique opportunity to develop meaningful and valuable business relations.
