The New Era of Finance Transformation

Exclusive FDE roundtable on the importance of embracing the latest digital technologies in order to help transform the finance function, moderated by Michael Sylva, CFO of strategic design firm, Designit.

Michael will discuss the finance transformation journey his organization undertook in order to support the rapid expansion they went through in recent years, and the need for core business systems that could help the firm stay agile and deliver on their fast-growth strategy. He will also provide insight into the challenges Designit faced during this journey, and the importance of the ’Golden Triangle’ of People, Process and Technology.

Some of the other questions that Michael will be exploring, when it comes to finance transformation, are:

  • 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 breakfast and discussion at The Nimb, Copenhagen on Tuesday 21st January 2020.
