In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, finance transformation is no longer just a buzzword; it’s a strategic imperative. Leading this transformation charge is the officer of the CFO (Chief Financial Officer), which serves as the financial steward and a catalyst for innovation and change within the organisation.

However, successful execution of finance transformation hinges not only on the expertise and vision of the CFO, but also on the steadfast support and empowerment granted by the boardroom.

In an era defined by disruption and dynamic market shifts, the webinar delves into how conversations about finance transformation are being conducted at boardroom level, how decisions are made, and how CFOs can be empowered to navigate the intricate landscape of finance transformation with confidence and efficacy.

Join DigitalCFO Asia and Workday in this exclusive webinar to find out more on how a proactive and collaborative partnership between CFO and the boardroom can empower the CFO to lead finance transformation efforts and ensuring the organisation to thrive in today’s ever-changing business world.

  • Learn how the role of CFO has evolved to become a strategic driver of finance transformation, and the expanding responsibilities and expectation being placed on modern CFOs.
  • Understand the critical importance of a strong partnership between the boardroom and the CFO in driving successful finance transformation.
