Comprehensive programme for financial leaders aimed at developing strategic competencies that are critical for growing enterprise value
Dear Sir or Madam,
The role of financial leaders is changing.
Growing complexity, internationalization of markets and the emergence of new disruptive business models force changes in the roles and responsibilities of financial executives within their organizations. Finance directors are becoming key players in the strategic management process and strategy execution. They undertake and are involved in activities that go far beyond their traditional financial domain, which requires their transformation from financial controllers into business strategists strongly focused on value creation.
We would like to personally invite Polish leaders participate in this new exciting programme aimed at not only updating their financial skills but also at improving their understanding of two critical roles: as strategist and as leader.

The CFOs Changing Role:
Growing Challenges and Opportunities
New turbulent and uncertain markets make the traditional CFOs tasks more dificult. At the same time, the best CFOs expand their role. This creates new exiting opportunities.
Thus, CFOs ARE MORE LIKELY to secure the coveted CEO position thanks to changes in the internal and external business environment, according to a new survey. The scope of CFO responsibilities today often also encompasses regulatory affairs, the compliance realm and a company's agenda. By setting up their finance departments to add strategic value to the organization, the role of CFO has been transformed to become a true business partner and co-pilot of the enterprise. It is only natural that they have therefore become much more likely candidates for the CEO position along the way. Prominent examples of CFO-to-CEO transitions include Ian Livingston (formerly BT Group), Joe Kaeser (Siemens), Frédéric Oudéa (Société Générale) and Kurt Bock (BASF).
