CFO and finance director programme

  • Share

Recent years have seen greater challenges for the finance function. Once seen as a predominantly supportive role, the finance function has evolved into a more strategic role, providing guidance and insight to the rest of the business and helping assess potential new investments.

The finance function can, and should, play an important role in evaluating opportunities, providing management information across a range of indicators and collaborating with other functions to achieve strategic goals.

Our CFO and finance director programmes throughout the UK aim to support CFOs by providing:

  • Technical workshops and dinners focused on strategic challenges
  • ITEM Club economic briefings
  • Other peer group networks.

For more insight, thought leadership and tools, visit our global CFO pages.
