The Benelux CFO Network will explore the new paradigm of the role of the CFO and how the modern Finance Leader can embrace new technologies and business models, contribute to strategy, drive transformation and growth as well as deliver value
The role of the CFO has evolved and will continue to change whilst disruption and technology continue to drive growth. As technology is evolving, finance departments are required to become more efficient, flexible and solutions focused. It is important that CFOs become strategic business partners and enable sustainable growth by investing in the latest technologies including big data analysis, artificial intelligence and automation and cloud technology.
With economic uncertainty and unpredictable markets it is essential CFOs equip themselves with the right tools to remain competitive, increase margins and stimulate growth. As Brexit negotiations continue, Benelux ports are becoming increasingly popular as the main point of entry to Europe which can be monetized. New regulations are changing the way businesses operate and finance departments are under pressure to adopt new strategies not only to comply with new regulations but also take advantage of them by gaining a competitive advantage. The CFO can secure the future of the organisation, drive purpose led transformation and thrive where others fail.
