Welcome

The pressure of the pandemic forged a deep resilience at the core of many businesses. Now, as the national economy begins to unlock, businesses must once again mobilise, shaping dynamic but considered responses to unlock new, often unexpected, pathways to progress. While the challenge of charting this course falls on all business leaders, CFOs are uniquely positioned to lead from the helm and see through the uncertainty that so often obscures opportunity.

The 8th Annual CFO Forum is dedicated to this pursuit. Over 200 leading financial executives will unite for a powerful day of case-based exploration and vision, converging from key industries to unlock opportunities emerging from the upturn economy.
