Embracing digital technology to transform finance

Exclusive FDE roundtable breakfast on Finance Transformation Success, and the increasingly influential role being played by digital technologies

As we all know, we are living in exciting and challenging times, where technology fuelled by data is creating new opportunities to unlock value through speed, control and insight, as well as creating opportunities to completely reimagine business models.

Therefore, at this exclusive FDE roundtable discussion, we will be hearing from finance leaders across different industries that will be sharing their experiences on the key enablers, as well as pitfalls to avoid, when undertaking any kind of finance transformation journey.

The session will be moderated by Tim Wakeford, VP Financials Product Strategy, EMEA at Workday and former Finance Director and Board Member of Cushman & Wakefield, who was also responsible for the entire digital transformation of finance at this real estate giant and will be exploring areas such as:

  • Do we have the right People with the right skill set?
  • Do we challenge our processes and invest enough in automation?
  • And ultimately, does Technology truly enable Finance to be disruptive?

This exclusive, VIP invitation-only event, which includes complimentary breakfast and drinks for the duration, will enable you to network with like-minded finance professionals who are at various stages of their own transformation journeys and developing their functions to be more cost and time efficient.

FDE will be hosting this roundtable breakfast and discussion at Palace Restaurant, Helsinki on Friday 10th May 2019.
