Course description

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Programme

Success as a CFO is rarely determined by technical ability. Mastery of the technical aspects of finance is a given - what makes the difference is the ability to lead and operate in areas where there is no right answer.

Today's CFOs are expected to play diverse and challenging roles and have the ability to influence and persuade when required. Beyond the traditional role of being a steward and running a tight and efficient finance operation, CFOs now need to help shape overall strategy and direction, instilling a partnering approach and mindset to help other parts of the business perform better. This requires softer skills of dealing with conflicts between stakeholders pragmatically and energising talent within finance to deliver high performance.

For the newly appointed or aspiring CFO, the CFO Programme will empower you to succeed by helping you to map out your future with confidence and expose you to a full range of skills and proven tactics. For the established CFO, it offers a refresher in current best practices, an opportunity to network and interact with peers, and provides valuable insights into a a range of initiatives being deployed to enhance the value they bring to their organisation.
