CFO Live in-person and virtual – full speaker lineup

CFO Live, the Group of 100’s marquee annual event for the nation’s top finance professionals, is being run again this year in association with The Australian Financial Review.

The keynote speaker is the Premier of New South Wales, the Hon Gladys Berejiklian. The Premier has led NSW through many crises including the recent bushfires and arguably set the global standard for a region dealing with the pandemic while getting business back to work. Her insights are a must for CFOs.

With an economy in recession, geopolitical uncertainty and technological disruption, the role of the CFO, is now even more critical. The new mandate of finance chiefs includes strategic leadership, cross-function partnerships and business transformation, as finance teams are expected to drive value through this crisis.

CFO Live 2020, will focus on the financial and operational strategies that will help businesses stay afloat and emerge stronger from the current crisis.

Australia’s most experienced and effective CFOs will share their insights on:

  • Capital management strategies;
  • Tax legislation related to the current crisis;
  • Business growth and scale-up strategies;
  • Impairment and financial reporting;
  • Investor reporting and the growth in ESG;
  • CFO-led digital transformation; and
  • Tales from the field dealing with COVID-19’s impact on businesses.

This one-day ‘hybrid event’ will take place on 29 October, for those who can get to Sydney will be held in person at the Hyatt Regency in Sydney, for everyone else it will be online.
