In the business world today, accounting finance executives are increasingly being asked to consult as strategists. As a CPA, your expertise brings a dynamic voice to business decisionmaking. This CFO Thinktank is designed to ensure that CPAs in executive roles are on the cutting edge of business issues, through regular peer and guided discussion groups.
This event is similar to the MOCPA CFO Networking Roundtable series that are offered throughout the year, but deeper in scope. The 6 hour event allows participants to explore a series of topics; in one focused, small-group setting. Participants will be encouraged to read a selection of professional articles related to event topics. As with all roundtable events, the session will be lightly moderated, but largely driven by you...the participant! If you have never attended an event like this, they are collaborative in nature, and participants are encouraged to engage in selected discussion topics by sharing your own expertise, insights, and experiences.
Topics center around key issues for managing and leading internal finance, control, strategy, and other critical roles. Here is the full agenda for the day:
• 9:00-10:00 Welcome, Introductions, and Whiteboard Exercise
• 10:00-10:45 Evaluating and Implementing Automation & Outsourcing
• 10:45 -11:30 Accounting Standard Updates for the Radar (a focus on Leasing)
• 11:30-12:15 Best Practices for Leadership and Office Culture
• 12:15-12:45 Catered Lunch
• 12:45-1:30 Budgeting & Forecasting -- Practical Applications
• 1:30-3:30 Open Forum Discussion and Whiteboard Exercise
Make sure that you are up to speed with current trends on these topics, network with your local peers, and help your company navigate the complex business world today.
