Finance Transformation Summit 2015

09 - 11 November, 2015

The Menzies, Sydney, Australia

Welcome to the 6th Annual Finance Transformation Summit 2015

Business Model Innovation, Talent Management, Predictive Analytics, Process Optimisation, Record to Report and Procure to Pay

Given the increasing pace of change, largely driven by technology, companies are increasingly looking to the finance function to play a central role in guiding and supporting strategic decision making.

With this change in focus, traditional accountancy skill sets being superseded by those more traditionally associated with the commercial arms of the business such as stakeholder management, leadership and communication.

With that in mind, Finance Transformation 2015 has been designed to give you all the tools you need to turn your finance function from reactive to proactive. Specifically, the event will focus on:

  • Business Model Innovation – What mix of shared services, outsourcing, onshore and offshore provides the best balance of cost and value?
  • Talent Management – Attracting individuals with the necessary skills for business partnering, and developing a career path that provides a talent pipeline for the rest of the business
  • Predictive Analytics – Creating a single source of truth from organisational data, and extracting meaningful insights that help drive strategic decision making
  • Process Optimisation – Using a combination of automation, business improvement and customer centric design to reduce waste and increase efficiency

Also, new for this year, the Finance Transformation Summit will also feature specific streams on Finance Strategy, Finance Operations a closed-door CFO Boardroom as well as a Procure-to-Pay stream, reflecting the increasing convergence between finance and procurement.
