CFO Roundtable 'Future of the Finance Function' in Switzerland

16 May, 2019
EMEA Recruitment were delighted to co-host a CFO Roundtable, 'Future of the Finance Function', this week in Morges, along with PwC and Nielsen.
The event prompted CFOs to think beyond survival, focusing on transforming their function through the adoption of an agile finance-operating model and encouraging them to seize the opportunity to move from a simple improvement in the efficiency of financial results to an impact on business performance.
Speakers included Director Value Chain Transformation, Darioush Zirakzadeh, who shared PwC's perspective on the evolution of the Finance function with digitisation.
Attendees also heard from Fredrik Nielsen, Senior VP Finance at Nielsen, who discussed the new tool they are using to manage and monitor company performance, a new source of financial and operational data, and also Paul Lemeer, Senior Finance Director at Medtronic, who shared the company's transformation in launching a large-scale restructuring of its global finance function.
Attendees (CFOs of global businesses) also contributed to a fascinating group discussion, covering the different stages of development in the digital transformation process.
Thank you to all those who attended and helped to make the event such a success. If you are interested in attending similar CFO Roundtable events in the future, please contact jenny.callum@emearecruitment.com
