The role of the CFO has expanded significantly in the past decade. The skill of the “old school” CFO – financial reporting, compliance and expense management – have been replaced by skills that better support the needs of organizations competing in an increasingly complex economic world. Now more than ever, organizations need strategic, collaborative and versatile CFOs - executives who truly understand how the business works and what financial strategies best support it. So what are the skills that we as CFOs need, and where should we focus our development?
Join the Austin CFO Leadership Council for “Habits of Highly Successful CFOs.” This panel discussion offers a diverse cross-section of business leaders who interact with chief financial officers on a daily basis. The professionals will share their insights into what truly make a highly effective CFO.
In this session, our speakers will discuss how CFOs can:
Clarify and drive company strategy, raise executive accountability to stock holders, investors, employees and the public at large
How to balance competing and conflicting demand from disparate contingencies
Embrace their position as a custodian and manager of key business performance metrics, and effectively communicate those metrics to their key stake holders
Expectations of Chief Financial Officers in fast growing companies
Nurture transparency and trust at all company levels
