Who should attend

Participants should:

  • Currently be in a senior finance or accounting role and report to the CFO or CEO (in larger organisations they may report to a direct report of the CFO)
  • Have a minimum five years’ experience in finance management roles
  • Have been identified with the potential to progress to CFO or equivalent role within the next five years

About the course

As the world of work changes rapidly, today’s CFO role is more complex than ever before. The cross-functional nature of the role sees CFOs driving transformation and being more proactive in influencing and leading change across the organisation. They act as catalysts, instilling a financial approach and mindset to not only equip their function with the right tools but collaborate across the business to drive success.

This experiential programme seeks to equip mid-career finance professionals with the skills to contribute at a strategic level, leading across their organisation to drive performance and make value-driven decisions. It is designed to be practical and relevant, and give finance leaders the tools to contribute at C-Suite level, both functionally and across business.
