Needs To Know

Webinar Series
The Best Ideas Emerge When Different Perspectives Meet

 

As the world changes the way it conducts and disrupts business, CFOs and finance leaders have to change how they think about and perform their respective roles. Preparing the business and its finances for constant change demands that short-term accuracy, compliance and transparency is aligned with long-term strategy, agility and mindset.

 

We know the best ideas emerge when very different perspectives meet. That’s why we’ve recruited some of the brightest thought leaders, authors, academics, customers, independent consultants and subject matter experts who are guiding contemporary CFOs and modern finance leaders – and brought their expertise together in this webinar series.

 

Rather than focusing on technology, these six webinars will address strategic business issues, opportunities and challenges affecting critical areas of the finance function along with the opportunity for live Q&As.

The role of the CFO is critical.  Yet, on top of an already demanding and fast evolving role, many CFOs have also taken on responsibility to deliver complex business-wide transformation.  And, while most finance leaders are used to managing change, the digital revolution is creating new challenges that they have not seen before.

 

In this webinar, Michael Haupt, author of The Contemporary CFO, addresses these challenges directly. Drawing on practical experience of transforming leading global businesses and on extensive, original research, and in-depth interviews with a wide range of corporate leaders, you’ll have the unique opportunity to hear the latest thinking, trends and perspectives that help finance leaders successfully navigate the demands of the connected world.

How exactly does digital transformation differ from system transformation? Which one is right for you? How many of your industry peers have already started, and how are they coping with these new demands?

 

Before you can move forward, we think you should know exactly what it is you’re looking to change and what’s enabling that change. What’s the right response from the finance department and the best way to approach requirements? This webinar provides insight from the latest research, and explores transformations in business models, organizations and technology.

External reporting is often defined by the end result. But finance professionals understand that behind every external final report is the huge internal effort, diligence and processes required to ensure accuracy, speed and transparency.  And more often than not, the larger the business, the larger and more complex this challenge becomes.  

 

In this webinar, you’ll hear how Heineken, one of the world’s largest breweries, is evolving its finance function one step at the time to significantly enhance their global processes – from operational data creation to final reporting – giving an honest peer level perspective from the coal face of digital transformation.

True finance transformation is much more than just simplifying and modernising systems. It’s about looking forward and ensuring the right decisions are made for the future success of the business. But this is only possible if all areas of the finance function are seamlessly connected.

 

Effective treasury and working capital management are crucial components in the pursuit of optimal performance. Yet many good treasury systems remain disconnected from operational data, limiting their impact. In this webinar, SAP’s treasury experts, show how the treasury function contributes to the overall success of finance transformation, including customer examples, tangible benefits and technology innovation.

Digitization is transforming tax compliance globally. Governments are introducing new tax frameworks, higher standards and increasingly demanding mandates aimed at reducing the VAT gap. More importantly, they’re actively enforcing them through random and efficient compliance checks.

 

Minimizing the risk of non-compliance and avoiding business disruption is almost impossible without the proper technology and real-time data in place. In this webinar, a panel of Europe’s leading tax consultants discuss how to transform common compliance challenges into automation and efficiency opportunities; how to simplify and transform tax into a strategic function; and the necessary steps required to comply in the digital world.
