KEYNOTE PANEL DISCUSSION: GUIDING THE SHIP TO STAY THE COURSE
Now more than ever CFOs are the guiding light for their business, they have access to all of the data and with this the responsibility to make intelligent well thought out decisions. However, the current climate has meant for many finance leaders their normally long-standing plans have been put on hold and instead decisions have been focused on the short term, ensuring the business is successfully adapting in this changing environment.
However, as we begin to tentatively move from survival to stability many CFOs are now searching for how to balance the impact of short-term decisions with their long-term plans – identify issues such as investment, cost cutting and talent. CFOs must now address how to begin to look at the impact of their decisions and move forward with both immediate action and longer-term sustainable planning. A CFO must also balance the importance of their own judgement and with their appetite for risk.

KEYNOTE PANEL DISCUSSION: SHAPING THE DIGITAL WORKFORCE
The pandemic has changed the way in which individuals work, and it is unlikely that companies will ever return to past practices and an office first culture. While for many the benefits of homeworking have been fully embraced, the novelty is also now wearing off. Many feel isolated, there is a lack of development and missed conversations.
However, people still want to have flexibility moving forwards and to be in a position where they are in control of their working patterns, where they work from and how they work, but what will this look like in practice? Is it really possible to keep everyone happy, whilst also ensuring that development, on boarding and collaboration also happen successfully?

KEYNOTE PANEL DISCUSSION: THE NEW MANDATE: THE ROLE OF THE CFO IN A NEW WORLD
As the business environment continues to adapt, so too will the legacies that are created by CFO. A world-class finance function created with carefully resourced scenario plans and agile business plans that help to create sustained earnings whilst maintaining cost discipline are all hallmarks of a successful tenure. However, a truly successful CFO will move beyond standard action and instead guide the business through this new and changeable environment investing in the technology that that will transform their function into a business partner, sourcing the best talent and making strategic and efficient decisions. To be truly successful CFOs will also begin to think about the future, focusing on ESG, diversity, customer relationship development and where they ultimately want to steer the business.
