The evolving role of modern age CFOs


A Networking Opportunity with Africa’s Top CFOs

Being a CFO is no longer a number-crunching game – as they are expected to go beyond their traditional accountancy profession and master business planning, risk management, IT & security systems, strategic thinking, crisis management and corporate governance to name a few.

Let the CFO Africa 2020 conference assist you in tackling the modern age challenges of optimising cost, forging stronger internal collaboration, minimising financial risk and combating corporate crimes to guide your business towards maximum profit.
