As you know, G100, Australia’s business association for CFOs is joining forces with the Australian Financial Review (AFR), to host our upcoming congress next month, called CFO Live.
CFO Live is designed to address issues that today’s CFOs and finance executives are facing, and it will take place in Sydney, on 7 November.
The one-day event will gather the nation’s top CFOs to give voice to their unique operational and strategic perspectives on the issues, challenges and opportunities facing Australian businesses.
