Revealing how finance can boost strategy and performance through the power of digital

AICPA & CIMA’s annual conference brings its Financial Planning & Analysis and Finance Transformation conferences under one roof.

Join us in September online from anywhere in the world, to hear our expert line up of speakers unveil how their finance functions are accelerating strategy and performance through digital change.

The current global crisis has proven that in key areas of process, people and technology, businesses have been left exposed. As we learn to operate in today’s new normal, the situation forces us to recognise failings and successes, to think about what positives can be taken from it and how learnings can be used to advance digital application, process efficiency and the human dimension.

FP&A and Finance Transformation is for finance leaders who want to be at the forefront of driving change.
