CFO LIVE > WEBCAST

Whether it is capital for new investments, the resources to recruit more employees or the means to increase competitiveness or profit optimisation – all organisations and their CFO want additional cash flow and this exclusive Live WebCast will discuss with a panel of leading CFOs and industry experts how to uncover significant savings across multiple spend areas within an organisation.

Covid19 has impacted all parts of the economy, upending entire industries, with even the healthiest of organisations experiencing a fall in revenues or requiring government support. With those supports now being removed, CFOs are under further pressure to ensure that they are in the best position to control costs to emerge stronger, more sustainable, and ready for times of growth.
