Why CFO Talks?
CFO Talks™ is a fast-tracked learning experience for CFOs.
A constant conversation amongst peers and experts ensures that the CFO is instantly aware of environmental changes and reduces reaction time in a very competitive environment. CFO Talks™ ensures a continued conversation by offering monthly networking events, online videos and interviews and CFO specific conferences.
Our monthly events are hosted at the UNISA SBL in Midrand.
A committee of experts meets quarterly to dissect and analyze trends and developments affecting the finance function. This is supported by surveys and interviews with peer groups to discover and develop topics that excite and illuminate. Our committee carefully selects and evaluate options for presenters to ensure delivery of meaningful discussion. This approach guarantees delegate satisfaction heightens receptiveness to messages delivered by advertisers and sponsors.
