The Strategic CFO
Financing growth and acquisitions.
In today's competitive market for capital, shareholders expect the Chief Financial Officer to be strategic, and to be advising on those approaches that will maximise the return on the use of the financial assets of the company. In this one-day workshop we explore the challenges facing CFOs who are willing to take a strategic view of their company and its finances.
Every modern corporate leader knows that finance can make or break a business. Hence it is essential to master the elements of best-practice methods of evaluating acquisitions and other investments, and the most effective way to finance them. For financial management to add value, the CFO must support and enhance the company's core competitive advantage. That is the challenge of strategic finance.
