CFO Reinvented -  Leading with Innovation, Ingenuity and Resilience

CFOs & Finance Leaders

Register for your complimentary pass today!



In an era defined by unprecedented challenges and opportunities, CFOs are tasked with not only managing financial operations but also driving strategic innovation and business growth. CFOs today have to spearhead digital transformation objectives, ESG initiatives, business growth and even AI, cloud adoption & cybersecurity. At the 2nd DigitalCFO Asia Singapore Symposium last year, 95% of CFOs & finance leaders felt that finance function and technology have evolved massively within the past few years. The need for CFOs to lead finance transformation has never been more crucial.

According to Deloitte’s CFO Survey in 2023, CFOs in Asia Pacific have identified their top priorities and concerns for 2024. Foremost among these priorities is revenue growth, where CFOs have to leverage their financial acumen and market insights to identify growth opportunities. Concurrently, they are also spearheading initiatives aimed at cost control and productivity enhancement efforts by embracing innovative technologies to optimise operational efficiency and improve organisational performance.

Their top concerns are talent retention, mandatory climate reporting and the potential global economic slowdown. CFOs now have to take the lead to drive the organisation based on their priorities, address areas of concern and mitigate both external and internal risks that are caused by these concerns. 

Join us for the 3rd DigitalCFO Asia Singapore Symposium, where we delve into the transformative and leadership journey of the modern Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Under the theme "CFO Reinvented - Leading with Innovation, Ingenuity, and Resilience," this symposium promises to be a dynamic exploration of the evolving role of CFOs in today's rapidly changing business landscape.

This symposium brings together CFOs, top finance leaders and industry experts to share insights, strategies, and best practices for CFOs & finance leaders seeking to lead and thrive in the digital age. Through engaging keynote presentations, interactive panel discussions, and practical case studies, attendees will gain actionable insights and inspiration to reinvent their roles as CFOs and lead with confidence in an era of constant change. 

Don't miss this opportunity to connect with peers, learn from industry experts, and chart the course for the future of finance at the 3rd DigitalCFO Asia Singapore Symposium.
